Biscuits with Green Chile Chorizo Gravy
For me, there is no better breakfast than a plate of hot, fresh biscuits covered in country gravy, with a couple of fried eggs on the side. It is comfort on a plate, and is also the Sunday morning special in our bus.
Given how much I like to play when I’m cooking, we have tried a lot of different varieties of biscuits and gravy. In fact, there are two different recipes in this dang cookbook alone, this one and a vegetarian variety made with onions and mushrooms. But this recipe, made with chorizo and green chile, definitely takes the cake. It is the best damn country gravy I’ve ever had, absolutely to die for poured over some hot biscuits. But also try putting it on hashbrowns or in a breakfast burrito while you’re at it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Biscuits with Chorizo and Green Chile Gravy
8 oz. chorizo
½ cup green chile
3 tbsp flour
3 cups milk
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp cumin
Salt + Pepper, to taste
4 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 stick butter
2 tsp salt
1 ½ cups milk
2 tsp dried herbs
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
Stir together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Melt butter, combine with milk, add to dry ingredients, and mix into a batter.
Spoon batter onto a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 400 for around 15-20 minutes, or until baked through. You can see our guide to stovetop baking here.
Begin by cooking the sausage over medium heat in a large saucepan. Break the sausage apart and cook until the meat is cooked through and the fat rendered. At this point, add the spices and the 3 tbsp of flour to the meat and mix well to combine. Allow this to cook for a few minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste.
Begin adding the milk around ½ cup at a time, stirring each time until the consistency is even throughout the pan. Continue adding milk until all 3 cups are in the pan. Then add your green chiles.
Now reduce the gravy to your desired consistency over medium heat. Remember, it will thicken slightly once it is removed from heat. When you reach your desired consistency, add 1 tsp white vinegar and salt to taste.
