I feel like this is frito pie on crack.

Pure comfort food is right here. Frito pie chili biscuit skillet has your name written all over it if you are looking for something that will stick to your ribs! Chili topped with fritos, cheese, and biscuits — what more could you ask for?!

If you’re looking for comfort food I feel like you don’t even need to look any further than this frito pie chili biscuit skillet.

It’s got chili, cheese, fritos, and flakey biscuits on top. Oh my freaking gosh.

This is definitely not something you should eat prior to trying to fit into a cocktail dress or anything. This is more of a stretchy yoga pants kind of day and we could always use many days like that, right?!

It’s been so freaking cold here (like 60’s in May?!) that this is the ultimate warm-me-up kind of dish.

I’m a cheater and I did not make the biscuits from scratch. And since we’re being honest here, I rarely ever make biscuits on my own because ugh, it’s just so much easier to pop open a can of biscuits than to get your bowls and fingers all dirty making biscuits from scratch. I’m seriously the worst.

I also grew up eating those grands flakey biscuits and lol, this is so bad but we ate them for breakfast some mornings. I wasn’t a very healthy kid lol

This also kind of reminds me of like a chili monkey bread or a pull apart bread of some sort. Except I think I like the ‘biscuit skillet’ name better. It’s much more intriguing, wouldn’t you think?

    “ugh, it’s just so much easier to pop open a can of biscuits than to get your bowls and fingers all dirty making biscuits from scratch. ”

    In 50+ years of cooking, I have been unable to discover how to not get bowls/fingers dirty. Instructions, please.
