Ingredients

  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 3 jalapenos minced (see note)
  • Cooking Spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Very lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Unroll first can of crescent dough. Smear 1-2 teaspoons of cream cheese all over the triangular shape. Sprinkle a generous pinch of cheddar cheese over the cream cheese. Top with a sprinkling of fresh jalapeno.
  • Roll up crescent and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining croissant dough.
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until rolls are lightly browned.

Notes

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.
