My mom was making this way before it was popular, back in the 70's! It's an easy dinner to make. The only thing I changed was I use ground turkey, whereas my mom used ground beef.

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 375. Lightly spray a 10" deep-dish pie tin w/ cooking spray. Place tin on lg cookie sheet. In lg non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook ground turkey, onion and bell pepper until ground turkey is cooked.
Stir in beans w/ the sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin and hot sauce. Bring to a boil. Stir. Reduce heat to med-low. Simmer 5 mins. Open the can of biscuits and separate them.
Press biscuits into bottom of pan, stretching up the sides and hanging over edge just a bit. Spoon chili mix into crust. In small bowl, whisk together sour cream and flour. Spread over chili.
