Chili Cornmeal Crescents Recipe

Publisher Photo
THESE UNIQUE ROLLS are tender, light and delicious, with a bit of chili tang. The zip and texture inspire requests for the recipe every time I serve them. For a fun change of pace, I'll sometimes use blue cornmeal when I make these. -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2012

"These were very good with the exception of I could not taste much of the chili. Could have been my chili powder. I will try a chili paste next time. Will make again. Great with a steaming hot bowl of Chili."
