Chili Cornbread Pockets

September 19, 2013

Cornbread biscuits filled with cheddar and chili and baked until crispy!

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.

16 oz can Pillsbury Grands Corn Biscuits
15 oz can chili with beans (or 2 cups prepared chili)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

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!

Pillsbury just released a free Grands! recipe book that you can download right here. I'm REALLY excited to try the Grands! Taco Melts, but I know the kids would really love Grands! Grilled Cheese Sandwiches - what a clever way to use those biscuits! Which recipe are you planning to try?

  1. This looks yummy. I had no idea they even had corn biscuits. I will be trying this real soon. New follower. Found you on the What's Shakin' link party. Have a great day!!!

  2. I had no idea either, Ashley. I would say they taste like a cross between cornbread and biscuits - really good. So happy to have you along!

  3. This looks so good! Found you through Rattlebridge Farm. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I haven't seen the corn biscuits, but I will definitely be on the lookout! I keep Grands in my fridge too, b/c I can always come up with something when i need a quick and easy dinner that the kids will eat. {and I saw somewhere that they are going to start selling the blueberry biscuits again...I'm excited :-)}

    Yummy! This looks delicious. I love the grands biscuits.

  6. These look great and anything that helps get dinner on the table is never to be sniffed at! Biscuits mean something completely different over here but these look very like our traditional pasties ... I love the idea of spicing them up with some hot chilli.

    We're sharing hot chilli & curry recipes at Empty Your Archive this week and I would love for you to share this - Alice @ Mums Make Lists

  7. I used to make this. Pillsbury no longer makes the Golden Corn Biscuits. I wish they would bring them back!

  8. Marie Callender's organic cornbread is to die for….I've used this mix for several years and everyone in my family loves it!! Now, it's sort of a tradition for me and the little ones to have weekly baking sessions with MC’s cornbreads and muffins. You should visit their website today to purchase your mixes. I’m sure you will enjoy the great taste!
