Kickin' Beefy Crescents

These are a fast meal, and they freeze well.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 4oz can chopped green chiles
1 8oz pkg reduced fat cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
3 cans reduced fat crescent rolls


Heat oven to 375.

Brown ground beef in a large skillet. Drain. Add the green chiles, cumin, chili powder and cream cheese. Heat through until cheese is melted and ingredients are well-combined.

Separate the crescent dough into 24 triangles. Place 1 tablespoon of beef mixture on the wider end of each triangle, and roll up.

Place on ungreased baking sheets and baked for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Ive seen a recipe close to this but the beef mixed with taco seasoning. Do you think it would go good with taco seasoning or best the way you came up with? Just curious, Ive wanted to try something like this but never had. Plan to now! Whats your opion?

I think you could use taco seasoning, but trust me that they are spectacular with the green chiles. It gives it just the right amount of kick without being too spicy. My boys loved them.

Do you freeze them baked or unbaked? What are the thawing/reheating/baking instructions?

I freeze them baked (just throw them in a gallon freezer bag after they cook). I just microwave them for a minute to reheat.
