The sweetness of the blueberries in this recipe is enhanced by the heat from the biscuits. You may use other fruit fillings, but fresh blueberries work the best. This recipe was developed by SuperSite Food Editor Emily DeWitt-Cisneros. From the article Blazing Blueberries.
2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
1/4 cup orange juice

Lightly grease an 8-inch-square baking dish. In the baking dish mix blueberries, vanilla, and orange juice. Sprinkle the top with sugar and flour, then stir in the butter. Bake for 15 minutes. While the blueberries are baking, in a medium size bowl combine the baking mix, milk and chile powder and mix until soft dough forms, adding more milk if needed.
