    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough, and press into bottom and 1 inch up sides of ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. If using crescent rolls, press perforations to seal. Prick all over with fork.

    Meanwhile, heat 10-inch skillet over medium heat; add chorizo, onion and bell pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring to break sausage in pieces, until no longer pink. Stir in garlic; cook about 1 minute or until fragrant. Drain.

    Top partially baked crust with sausage mixture and shredded cheese. In blender, place eggs, cream cheese and salt. Cover and blend 60 to 90 seconds or until mixture is smooth; pour over sausage and cheese.
