How to Make Crab and Cream Cheese croissants


  • 1Preheat oven according to the croissant package.
    Seed and dice the jalepeno. Open and drain cans of crab or shrimp. (tuna and salmon might work well also)
  • 2In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients, mixing well.
    You can make a little go a long way if when you open the croissants you cut them in half. This is where the as many as you like for servings comes in. :-}
  • 3Fill the croissants and roll.
    Place them on a baking sheet and bake according to package directions.
    I hope these are as successful for you as they have been for me.
