Treat yourself to my Cheesy Green Chili and Bacon Buttermilk Biscuits this week! Buttery and full of great flavors.

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Land O Lakes® Butter today!  You know by now that butter is one of my very favorite ingredients :)  I’ve developed a buttermilk biscuit that is packed with my favorite ingredients.

Kitchen Conversations brings together a really great group of food bloggers including myself, my pal Ree from The Pioneer Woman, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod, Bridget from Bake at 350, Sommer from A Spicy Perspective, Brenda from A Farmgirls Dabbles, Julie from The Little Kitchen, Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas, and Jessica from The Novice Chef. Look for more recipes from this fun group all year long!

For my first recipe with Land O Lakes®, I’ve developed a buttermilk biscuit that is packed with my favorite ingredients. They are loaded with cheddar cheese, diced green chiles and BACON! Talk about my dream biscuit. These babies are best eaten warm with a nice spread of butter.

Baked potatoes just got better with my Loaded Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potato!

How good are twice baked potatoes?!  I haven’t had one in years but had a craving to create my own this week after reading the latest Food Network Magazine.

My Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet makes the perfect quick and simple weeknight dinner!

I am always looking for quick and simple weeknight dinners and this one I developed last week was a huge success.  We love Mexican dinners every week and this was a great addition to add to my rotating menu options.
You can use a rotisserie chicken to save yourself some time, or if you have time I highly suggest grilling up my Taco Lime Chicken.  We used it for this recipe and it was the perfect addition with the spices in the rice.
Break out your cast iron skillet and try out this zesty chicken and rice skillet this week!
Enjoy friends!
