We spiced up our cream cheese biscuits with Boursin® Monterey Jack and Spicy Pepper Cheese Dip. With just a few simple ingredients you can add a little flare to your typical hearty appetizers or meals.
We have been making cream cheese biscuits for a few years now. They are flakey, yummy and compliment most meals – including breakfast. We decided to try to spice them up a bit with the Boursin® Monterey Jack and Spicy Pepper Cheese Dip we found at Walmart because that is how we roll. We are always looking for new or different ways to change up our tried and true, go to dishes.
Monterey Jack and Spicy Pepper Mini Biscuit Ingredients:
- 5.6 oz (one container) of Boursin® Monterey Jack and Spicy Pepper Cheese Dip -softened
- 2 oz of regular Great Value cream cheese
- 2/3 cup Great Value salted sweet cream butter – softened
- 1 cup of self rising flour plus extra Great Value all purpose flour for dusting
- Mix together cheeses, self rising flour and butter. You can do this by hand or in a food processor.
- Dump out onto a piece of waxed paper and refrigerate for an hour.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.
- Dust your work surface with flour, place dough on surface and dust flour on top of the dough.
- Roll out dough to 1/2 an inch thick and cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter
- Place on baking sheet about an inch apart.
- Cut out as many biscuits as you can, reform the dough, roll out the dough again and continue cutting. Make sure you add more flour to your work surface if the dough is getting sticky.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Rotate the pan halfway through.
The final product! Yummy, flakey biscuits with a kick.
We paired this with my husband’s beef stew made with rosemary and red zinfandel for a recent get-together. It made a perfect heavy appetizer. The wine and the spicy cheese dip flavor complimented each other perfectly. We tend to serve more heavy appetizers when we have people over instead of entrees. It guarantees that everyone has a choice and I can customize my menus to my friends eating restrictions and allergies.
These biscuits didn’t rise as much or were as fluffy as the usual cream cheese biscuits that we make but I have to say, they were just as delicious. I think the monterey jack and spicy pepper cheese made it a little heavier. The slightly heavier consistency went well with the stew. They were still really flakey though! If you want them fluffier I would suggest cutting the cheese dip in half and using more cream cheese. We really liked them this way and so did our guests.
I never actually realized how versatile Boursin® cheese dips could be. I will definitely be looking for ways to incorporate them into other dishes for my upcoming holiday parties and family events. They add huge flavor to dishes and since I am always at Walmart deli bunker (my family is obsessed with cheese and lunch meats) I can grab some to keep on hand when I am whipping stuff up.
