  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough on work surface. Press into 12x9-inch rectangle. If using crescent roll dough, firmly press perforations to seal. With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares. Press 1 square in bottom and up side of each of 24 ungreased nonstick mini muffin cups.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, bacon, serrano chile and cheese until well blended. Spoon rounded teaspoonful cream cheese mixture into each cup.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from pan to serving platter. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Quarter 6 cherry tomatoes. Garnish each crescent cup with a cherry tomato wedge and a cilantro sprig.
  • Keep dough in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it; cold dough is much easier to work with. Have the other ingredients ready to use.
  • Can’t find serrano chiles? Substitute jalapeño chiles.
