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. The Test Kitchen
