We like to eat breakfast for dinner sometimes so I made these kickin' little biscuits to go along with the meal. Everyone loved them and they got eaten up fast!

Adjust the heat to your liking. I like my food a bit spicy so next time I will add a little more jalapenos. Also make sure to add additional flour while kneading the dough, 1/2 to 1 cup should do it.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Cut stick of butter (cold) into tiny pea size chunks and add to dry ingredients. Mix 1 egg and milk in separate bowl then add into mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Finally add your jalapeno and cheese. Knead dough on a flat surface with flour. Cut out biscuits and place on greased cookie sheet. Beat the other egg and brush on top of your biscuits. Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool and serve.
