Not only is this recipe delicious, but it's truly creative! I can’t wait for the next time I need to take a dish to a party - This will be a real winner. Pair it with a salad for a filling dinner, or slice it up and serve it as a finger food for your next party. I may try preparing it with shredded beef next time instead of the chicken, just for something different.

How To Make chicken enchilada ring

    Chop chicken and add olives, cheese, chilies, Miracle Whip and taco mix. Seed and chop 1 tomato and add 2 tablespoons lime juice; add to chicken mixture. Reserve 2 tablespoons crushed chips and add remaining chips to mixture.

    Unroll crescent dough and separate trianges. Arrange on round baking stone or cookie sheet making a circle with wide ends overlapping in the center and points toward outside. There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in the center.

    Spread chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.

    Bring points of triangles up and over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring. (Hang in there....almost finished!) Sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons crushed chips.
