Since yesterday was a dessert post I want to share main course recipe with you today. I have made this one a few times because its fast, easy, and makes great left overs! Doesnt get much better than that right?!? So are you ready to try a new recipe?? YES!! I was hoping you would say that!
Chicken Enchilada Puffs
(A TidyMom blog recipe, modified by Rachael)
· 2 packages regular crescent rolls
· 3 oz cream cheese
· 1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
· 2 cup cooked chicken (diced or shredded)
· 2/3 cup enchilada or taco sauce
· 4 teaspoons enchilada or taco seasoning mix
· 1/2 cup Mexican shredded cheese for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375° and line cookie sheet with foil and spray with no-stick spray
Place cream cheese and Mexican cheese in small bowl and microwave for about 30-40 seconds, to soften.
Add seasoning mix, sauce and chicken to cheese mixture and stir until combined.
Unroll crescent rolls (leave the 2 triangles of each section together to make a square) on prepared pan.
Scoop 1 large heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture into the center of the two short ends of the crescent roll.
Pull outer corners of the crescent roll over the chicken mixture, and then pull the long end over, completely enclosing filling.
Sprinkle tops of puffs with additional shredded Mexican cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
I doubled this recipe because it only made 4 and thats not enough left-overs for me and its just too easy to make this doubled. I serve this with steamed veggies and rice (if I have it on hand) because...well just the puff a balanced meal does not make :) I hope you are your family enjoys this version of the chicken bundle as much as mine does! Oh and by the way we have tried 3 different versions of the chicken bundle and I found that this version was our favorite...if my opinion counts for anything :)
