Taco Crescents

FINALLY! I get to pull out my awesome pink Packer’s jersey. And as I’m watching the game now, I am starting to agree with Bob that we need a bigger TV. When I lived with my mom, we’d watch the games on a big 50 incher… now we only have a 32 inch TV.  😦

My second “finally moment” is tonight I picked out a dinner recipe that only took about 30 minutes to cook from prep to eating. Easy and delicious is definitely a winning combination on a busy weeknight. These tasty taco crescents are probably meant to be more of an appetizer or finger food at a party, but eating two was the just the perfect amount for dinner. Plus they made my house smell like buttery, flakey crescents. Mmmmmmm…mmmmm

The recipe calls for chicken, but I substituted ground venison since the other two dinners I have planned this week use chicken. I’ve never made these before, but I’m sure they are the same amount of tasty with either meat!

Taco Crescents Recipe (from TidyMom.net)

Ingredients:

  • 1 package jumbo crescent rolls
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 3/4 cup cooked chicken (diced or shredded)
  • 1/3 cup enchilada or taco sauce
  • 2 teaspoons enchilada or taco seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup Mexican shredded cheese for sprinkling

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° and line cookie sheet with foil and spray with no-stick spray
  2. Place cream cheese and 1/2 cup Mexican cheese in small bowl and microwave for about 30-40 seconds, to soften.
  3. Add seasoning mix, sauce and chicken to cheese mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Unroll crescent rolls on prepared pan.
  5. Scoop 1 large heaping tablespoon of meat mixture into the center of the two short ends of the crescent roll.
  6. Pull outer corners of the crescent roll over the chicken mixture, and then pull the long end over, completely enclosing filling.
  7. Sprinkle tops of puffs with additional shredded Mexican cheese.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
