Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients. In a large skillet, cook bacon until browned. Cool and break into small pieces. Using a box grater, shred the cheddar cheese and place in a bowl until ready to use.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, cream of tartar, and salt.
Using a blending fork, cut in vegetable shortening until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
Place the large egg and whole milk inside this well. Stir to combine, then gradually mix in to the flour. Add the shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green chilies, and crumbled bacon. If necessary, use your hands to finish combining the dough until it forms a ball.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 10-12 times. Roll out the dough into a circle that is 1/2-inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter.
Place biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Makes 20 biscuits.
