Easy Ranch Biscuits

      I chose this recipe because it looked so simple and except for the cheese, none of the ingredients require refrigeration.  From the Hidden Valley Ranch website, these drop biscuits can be mixed in a jiffy and quickly baked in a hot oven.  In my 10 inch dutch oven, they baked for 15 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 26 briquettes on the lid.  You can definitely taste the dressing mix. They aren't quite as flaky as other biscuit recipes I've tried but they're quick and easy and made darned good ham and cheese sandwiches while they were still warm.

Easy Ranch Biscuits
1 1 oz packet ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced green chilies

     Lightly oil or spray dutch oven.
     In large bowl, combine dressing mix, baking mix, cheese and green chilies.
     Add beer; stir until well-blended.
     Drop by spoonfuls into prepared dutch oven.
     Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
     Makes 12 small biscuits.
