I love appetizers, and these are among my favorites - I can even get my meat lovin' husband to eat these! They are easy and good, and the ingredients can be switched out to suit individual tastes. Since they can be assembled ahead of time, they are the perfect party food!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1 pkg
    cream cheese, 3 oz., softened
  • 1/2 c
    cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp
    chopped green chilis (from small can)

How to Make Cheesy Chili Crescent Bite Appetizers

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease cookie sheet; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl mix all ingredients except crescent rolls, blend well.
  3. Separate crescent rolls into 4 rectangles. Press perforations in each of the 4 rectangles to seal. Spread 1/4 of cheese mixture over each rectangle, leaving a narrow edge. From the long side, roll up each rectangle until filling is enclosed. Cut each roll into 10 slices.
  4. Place each piece cut side down onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediately.

    *To make ahead of time, prepare, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 hours before baking. Bake as directed.

    *For the canned chilis, you can use the mild or the jalapeno peppers, as you prefer. I use 1 tablespoon of each.
