Cheddar Jalapeno Biscuits

Nothing compliments pulled pork quite like a good biscuit to soak up all that sauce.
I usually stick to a basic buttermilk biscuit but this time around I want to spice it up a bit.
I'm going to follow this recipe (from www.food.com) for jalapeno cheddar biscuits to fill with delicious, delicious pulled pork.

1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400°F.
2. Whisk 2 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1/2 tsp salt in a medium bowl to combine. Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese and incorporate.
3. Cut in 8 tbsp butter with a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
4. Make a well in the center. Whisk 3/4 cup yogurt and 1/3 cup milk in a small bowl to combine. Add 3 jalapeños, seeded and diced.
5. Pour into the well and mix with a fork, adding a tablespoon or so of additional milk if needed to form a moist sticky dough.
6. Drop 12 heaping tablespoons of the dough onto a ungreased baking sheet spacing the biscuits about 2 inches apart.
7. Bake until the tops are tipped with golden brown about 20 minutes.
