I, for one, cannot wait for cooler weather to arrive. Once the temperature starts dropping that means comfort food and family. Usually Sunday’s are spent making big meals for the family. But now you don’t have to limit comfort foods to when you can spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Chili is one of my favorite comfort foods because my dad always used to make it for the family on the weekends. Sometimes I want that chili taste without waiting for it to cook. And coming home from after a long day of work, I really don’t want to stand over the stove for too long but I still want a good home cooked meal.
One product my nephew is always asking me to make is MANWICH. It’s something he just loves so when I saw the familiar can on my last visit to Walmart, I knew I had to get some but make it a little different.
These Chili Pockets are filled with flavor and are simple to make in hardly no time at all. Throw in some bell peppers and RO*TEL and you’ve got the perfect filling to roll up in biscuit dough. I guarantee your family will love this and you’ll love how quick and simple it is to make.

1 lb lean ground beef
Salt and pepper, to taste
Garlic powder, to taste
Onion powder, to taste
1 green bell pepper, diced into small pieces
1 can RO*TEL
1 can MANWICH
1 1/2 can refrigerated biscuit dough (15 biscuits)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place lean ground beef in nonstick skillet. Brown over medium heat. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
When beef is half browned, add bell pepper and continue to cook until beef is browned.
Once beef is cooked, add MANWICH and half the can of RO*TEL (or if you want it spicy, add the entire can). Mix together.
Open cans of biscuits and separate. Roll out dough until they are twice the size rolled out.
Place about 2 tablespoon of meat mixture in the middle of the biscuits. Bring up two sides of the dough and pinch together. Bring remaining two sides of dough up to make into a ball.
Place dough on cookie sheets.
Prepare egg wash by adding egg to a small bowl. Add about 1 teaspoon of water to bowl and whisk together. Brush egg wash over dough. Sprinkle Panko bread crumbs on top.
Bake for 16-18 minutes.
