More About This Recipe

  • This here mess is some serious business. Not serious as in how hard it is to make, because, hi, do you know me at all? Shortcut Sally. But serious as in how incredible it is to either a) bite into or b) pull apart these lil' bites of seriousness. Serious. They're perfect on so many levels. All the after-school snack levels. All the lock yourself in the bathroom with a platter of these and a bottle of prosecco levels. All the levels. Just little Pillsbury crescent roll ball thingies stuffed with chopped chicken, green chiles, lil' bit of mayo, taco seasoning, cilantro and LOTS OF CHEESE. Sorry to scream. I mentioned how serious these are, right? Dip in some mayo/lime juice/taco seasoning that you made while you were crying for these to finish baking.
