Taco Crescent Wreath

READY IN: 58mins
Recipe by Ms B.

This is a Tex-Mex twist on the veggie pizza. The wreath is a nice presentation for the holidays, but the crescent rolls can be rolled flat and baked for a more traditional pizza-type crust. I use my own fresh salsa for the topping (on the side), but a chunky bottled version would work. The chipotle chiles add a nice heat to the creamy layer and their amount can be adjusted to your tastes. This recipe is from a Pillsbury appetizer cookbook.

I tried this recipe for Xmas and it was a huge hit! The flavor is perfect and I made it in the shape of an xmas tree. I made alittle extra of the topping mixture, but it does not keep at all, even overnight. It is not a big deal because I would be surprised if you have any leftovers from this dish anyways.
