I think we all know that I'm completely addicted to shortcut recipes, hence the name of my blog. More than that, I'm addicted to shortcut recipes that taste and look like it was nothing shortcut about it. I like to impress, with as little effort as possible.
Which is pretty much, basically, why Pillsbury is just about my best friend. End of story. Really, when I was asked to write a post using their products its almost like.... Yeah... sure guys, I don't already have 4 recipes in my queue that already use Pillsbury awesomeness... cough, cough.
I'm being totally honest, here. We are ca-razy busy during dinner time especially now that school has started. I have hardly a minute to breathe before transitioning from teacher-mode to mom-mode and Pillsbury products save the day more times than I care to admit.
Ok, so maybe I do admit to it since I post most of the recipes on here. You're not complaining, so why should I? :)
Pillsbury has a recipe for Grands! Unsloppy Joes (you TOTALLY need to pin that one, it's a total winner), but I decided to put my own spin on it when I spotted new Corn Grands Biscuits in the store.
Chili Cornbread Pockets were born! You can't get easier than a recipe like this on a weeknight and I'm not kidding - my munchkins INHALED these.
15 oz can chili with beans (or 2 cups prepared chili)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Separate biscuits and press into a 5 inch round - the biscuit will be thin. Spoon 1/4 cup chili onto the center of the biscuit, leaving 1/2 inch clean on all sides. Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons cheese on top of chili.
Fold biscuit over filling and press firmly with a fork. Place filled biscuits onto two foil-lined and greased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool 5 minutes before serving. These are amazing dipped in sour cream!
