How to Make Chugwater Chili For Chili Cheese Cups

If you are making just enough chili for this recipe you will want to do a half batch of Chugwater Chili.

Brown 1 pound of ground beef (you can also use venison or ground turkey). 

Add in 1 ½ rounded tablespoons of Chugwater Chili Seasoning. If you want this to be hotter you can use Chugwater Chili Hot Chili Seasoning

Add in ½ a 15-ounce can of tomato sauce, a 15-ounce can of pinto beans (you do not need to drain the juice), and about ½ cup water. We want this chili to be thick for this recipe. 

Assembling the Chili Cups 

Once you have your Chugwater Chili made it is time to make the chili cheese cups. You can also use leftover chili if you have it as well. 

Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray (this prevents the cups from sticking). 

You will use 2 to 3 8-count cans of biscuit dough. 

Take a piece of dough and flatten it out then mold it to the muffin tin to make a cup with a cavity that you can use to fill with chili.

Fill the cavity with chili to just below the edge of the cavity. Do not overfill. As the biscuit dough cooks it will expand and if you have too much it will push out. Repeat until all dough cups are filled.
