I adopted this recipe after my friend Shelly departed the site. Shelly's original description: "Crescent rolls, cream cheese, corn chips? Can you say heaven and South Beach be damned? LOL"

I was really interested in this recipe, both as a meal component and as an after school snack for my son, but it just didn't work for us. The filling tasted "off" some how and no amount of salsa helped.
