Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Chili Cups

Every once in a while you need to jazz up your food a little bit right? And that’s what canned biscuits are for! I’ve always wanted to try cooking biscuits this way but was afraid it would be a big fat flop but guess what? It wasn’t at all! It was pretty fun actually. I made a small pot of chili then baked the biscuits on the backside of my muffin tin and voila! Little bread bowls! So fun! You gotta try ‘em!

Chili Cups
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion ~ diced
1 package chili mix
1 14-ounce petite diced tomatoes
1 cup salsa
Salt and pepper to taste
1 8-count package Grands Refrigerated Biscuits
In a large skillet, saute the onion in a little olive oil for about 5 minutes.
Add the ground beef and cook through.
Add the chili mix, canned tomatoes and salsa.
Simmer for 15 minutes.
Spray the backside of a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
Unwrap and separate biscuits and press flat to about a 4” circle.
Form the flattened biscuits over every other inverted cup so that the dough is not touching. (You may have to cook in batches. )
Cook according to package directions until golden brown.
Allow to cool for a few minutes then remove from the tin.
Fill with chili mixture.
Add cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.

Let's have some fun with our food!

Saute the onions a bit then 
cook the ground beef until done.

Then add the chili mix, salsa 
and tomatoes along with some 
salt and pepper.

Simmer about 15 minutes.

Press out the biscuit dough.

Then form over every 
other inverted muffin cup.


Then fill the cups with the chili 
and add your favorite toppings!
