  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green chiles
  • 1/4 cup chopped ripe olives, drained
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls


  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese. Add the cheddar cheese, chiles, olives, onion and hot pepper sauce. Separate each tube of crescent dough into 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal.
  2. 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. Bake at 400° until golden brown, 8-10 minutes.
