These came out so very tender! The jalapeno is not overpowering at all and gave it such a nice taste in the background. Because there was yeast in it, let the biscuits rest in the greased pan prior to placing them in the oven, but found that they spread and not sure if it really needs to have a rest/rise. Cut the recipe in half and got about 15 biscuits, but next time I'll make sure they are higher than 1/2 - 3/4 inch and will add more salt and a bit more baking soda. They were very delicious and a do-again. Thanks Dee, for sharing. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game.
