Taking inspiration from a Texas staple, the corn chip pie, this donut recipe comes with all the fixings.

It starts with an easily made donut made from canned biscuits. A savory combination of HORMEL® Chili frosting and queso icing lie on top of the plush dough, which is then topped with salty corn chips. The result is undeniably as good as it sounds.

Dish Type


1 (16.3-ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 (8-ounce) package pasteurized prepared cheese product, cubed
¼ cup whole milk
1 (15-ounce) can HORMEL® Chili No Beans
1 Oil for frying
1 cup crushed corn chips


  1. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. With 1-inch round cutter, cut hole in center of each biscuit. Save those donut holes for later if you want a little snack on the side.

  2. In small saucepan over low heat, combine cheese and milk. Cook 6 to 8 minutes stirring occasionally until melted. Remove from heat.

  3. In blender cup, place chili. Blend until smooth. Transfer to small saucepan. Warm over medium-low heat until heated through.

  4. In 2-quart saucepan heat oil to 350° F. Gently place 2 or 3 biscuits in hot oil. (Biscuit holes can also be fried.) Fry one side until golden brown. Turn over to brown other side. Remove to a cooling rack.

  5. Dip doughnuts in chili. Return to cooling rack. Drizzle with cheese mixture. Sprinkle with crushed corn chips.
