Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls are the perfect party appetizer. When it comes to crescent roll recipes, this is definitely one of my all time favorites!
If you need a quick appetizer on the spot, then this should become your go-to recipe. With the premade dough you will have a quick and amazing jalapeno popper dip (inside crescent roll) in no time, that can work with any occasion.
Whether it is a potluck, game day, or an unplanned get-together, Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls will be a hit. Modeled after the classic jalapeno popper, these combine two cheeses with fresh jalapenos all neatly wrapped in a buttery, flaky, rich pastry. A sophisticated jalapeno popper, if you will.
While developing Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls I used refrigerated croissant dough because it was much easier. When you go through multiple variations you really don’t want to have to mess around with delicate pastry dough making.
Now that I have mastered the ratios I would still go with refrigerated pre-made dough. The beauty of these is that they are quick, easy and require few ingredients. Dough from scratch would mess up the allure.
Jalapeno Popper Crescent also freeze well, in fact I made two batches and froze one for the night there is an impromptu meeting of Buffalo Bills fans at my home. Cook fully, then freeze, reheat at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until warmed through.

Jalapenos can have oils that will burn your finger tips. Unfortunately you won't be able to tell if the oils are hot until you start working with the pepper. To avoid tender finger tips or *gasp* accidentally touching your eye, coat hands in olive oil, fashion plastic sandwich baggies into gloves or use powder-free latex gloves. If you do end up with sore fingers, soak them in milk or cream, the higher the fat content the better.
