Pepper Cheese Biscuits

Ingredients
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
cup butter or margarine
3/4
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (3 ounces)
2
tablespoons snipped chives
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4
cup buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour and baking soda. With a pastry blender or two knives cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, snipped chives, and ground red pepper. Make a well in center. Add the buttermilk all at once; stir until moistened.

Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden.
