For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

For the Chorizo Gravy:

  • 8 ounces chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour the buttermilk into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick.
  6. Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out biscuits from the dough. Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each one.
  7. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  8. While the biscuits are baking, prepare the chorizo gravy. In a large skillet, cook the chorizo sausage over medium heat, breaking it up with a spoon, until it is browned and cooked through. Remove the cooked chorizo from the skillet and set aside.
  9. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, sprinkle the flour over the butter and whisk until smooth. Cook the flour mixture for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  10. Gradually pour the milk into the skillet, whisking constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook the gravy, stirring frequently, until it thickens and begins to bubble.
  11. Return the cooked chorizo to the skillet with the gravy, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  12. To serve, split the warm biscuits in half and place them on serving plates. Spoon the chorizo gravy over the biscuits, and garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  13. Enjoy your delicious Biscuits and Chorizo Gravy hot, and savor every flavorful bite!

Biscuits and gravy is a classic comfort food dish that has been enjoyed for generations. But why stick to tradition when you can elevate it with a delicious twist? Enter: Biscuits and Chorizo Gravy. This recipe combines the flakiness of homemade biscuits with the rich and spicy flavor of chorizo gravy, creating a dish that's perfect for breakfast, brunch, or any meal of the day.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10 biscuits (see notes)
  • 2 (9-ounce) tubes Cacique pork chorizo
  • 1/2 medium white or yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk

Instructions

  1. Prepare biscuits according to package instructions or your preferred recipe.
  2. As soon as you put the biscuits in the oven, begin preparing the gravy. Heat a large sauté pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chorizo. Use a spatula to break it apart, then add the onions, and cook for 7-minutes until the chorizo begins to brown.
  3. Stir in the flour and cook for another minute, stirring occasionally.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the milk and simmer for 5-7minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
  5. Ladle the chorizo gravy over biscuits, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve warm.

Storage: Leftover chorizo gravy should be refrigerated in an airtight container. It will keep for up to four days.

Notes

I highly suggest you prepare homemade biscuits because it's not hard to do and nor is it time-consuming. And let's face it, fresh, made from scratch biscuits just taste better. You may use your favorite recipe or look below for my recipe for green chile biscuits which are what I use. If you're in a pinch for time or simply don't feel like messing with it, you could certainly use store-bought biscuits.
