Crunchy, creamy, spicy delight in bite-sized pastry. If you use ready-made dough, this is very simple and fast.

  • 8 ounces canned green chilies, diced
  • 13 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 13 cups dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 14 ounces taco seasoning mix


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and grease a baking sheet.
  2. Separate the dough into four 3x6-inch rectagles on cutting board, press the seams closed. Spread cream cheese evenly to all rectangles, top with the chiles. Fold rectangles in half lenghtwise, cut each to eight pieces.

These were good. Creamy inside! Yum! I think they would be better though turned in crushed tortilla chips- would make a crunchy crust.
