  • 1 Medium Cooked Chicken Breast Shredded
  • 2 Tbsp Diced Green Chilies
  • 3/4 Cup Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Canned Corn Rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup Canned Black Beans Rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning Store Bought Mix
  • 1 1/2 Cups Shredded Mexican or Pepper jack Cheese
  • 8 Oz Cream Cheese
  • 3 8 Oz Cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Optional Toppings

  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream (or Plain Greek Yogurt)
  • Guacamole
  • Lime Juice
  • Fresh Cilantro


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Combine all ingredients except the crescent rolls and half a cup of the shredded cheese into a large bowl. Stir and mash the mixture together until it is evenly combined. Set aside.
  • Take two crescent triangles and place them together to form a rectangle. Pinch the seam with your fingers to close it tight. Place about 2 heaping tbsp of the mixture in the center of the crescent rolls. 
  • Fold opposite corners up to meet each other and pinch them together. Repeat with the other two corners. Then pinch the sides together to close the crescent roll.* Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet leaving at least an inch in between each puff because they will expand.  Repeat until all the crescent rolls are filled.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the puffs with the remaining cheese and bake on the center rack for 25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Serve warm with your favorite salsa, sour cream, or guacamole! Enjoy!

*It is okay if some of the mix seeps out of the crescent rolls! It can get a little messy sometimes, but they will still taste delicious!
*I find it helpful to leave the crescent rolls in the fridge until the last minute. If they are at room temp they get sticky and hard to work with.
