Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
  • 2 tablespoons picante sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Additional chili powder, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the cheddar cheese, chiles, picante sauce, chili powder, garlic salt and onion powder until blended.
  2. Separate each tube of crescent roll dough into four rectangles; press perforations to seal. Spread about 1/4 cup cheese mixture over each rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. Cut each roll into eight slices; place on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with additional chili powder if desired. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
