Chili Cheese Pinwheel Snacks


  • 2 8oz. tubes of refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 8oz. package of cream cheese
  • 1/4 c chopped medium black olives
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tsp dried minced onions
  • 1/4 c chopped green chilies (optional)

1. Preheat to 400.

2. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese. Add the cheddar cheese, chilies, olives, onion, and hot sauce.

3. Separate each tube of crescent dough into four rectangles; press perforations to seal.

4. Spread cheese mixture over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut each roll into 10 slices; place on greased baking sheets (or on backing sheets lined with parchment paper).

5. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Recipe inspired by Richardson High School Culinary program.

Note: I’ve found best results using name brand crescent rolls. I also use reduced fat crescent rolls, 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and reduced fat/fat free cheddar cheese. Helps people feel better about pigging out : ) Great Super Bowl snack!
