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?

Hi Julie! I’m trying your recipe, but changing some things. Hope you don’t mind. Lol FIRST, I double the recipe, sorry not like those tv people who are sitting down at the table and everyone gets 1 hard shell taco!!! We’re to CORN-FED.. lol Instead of kidney beans I added CHILI BEANS. I used the ROTEL MILD TOMAOE WITH CRUSH PEPPERS...and the CHILI MIX (in the packets)WITH A TSP. of (packet) of TACO MIX. I didn’t have any Fritos so I used some unsalted chips ( put in gal. Baggie used a rolling pin to crush the chips.)... instead of mixing in the mixture, I FOLDED IN WITH SERGENTO SHREDDED SHARP CHEESE. For the topping...because it was doubled the skillet was to small.. haha... was still awesome though!!

This looks amazing. My plans for dinner have just changed. I also grew up eating canned biscuits for breakfast. Deep fried rolled in cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar.

Due to a shopping list mix up I bought a 27oz can of chili beans and I used them all and it turned out awesome.
