I made this exactly as directed. I thought it was ok. Seemed like it needed something else. Will try again with some changes. Read More

So I didn't use Hormel chili but instead use my leftover chili for these. Ended up being pretty good use of leftover chili! I placed my cheeses on top of the crescent roll with just a slight sprinkle of cilantro to help change the taste from leftover to something new and it added a very nice look to it. Serve with a side of sour cream and it is surprisingly wonderful. Read More

It's in the oven now and I don't anticipate any problems. I forgot to add the cheese but will still be good. Read More

These were great! The filling was tasty and was delicious with the flaky biscuit dough. I served these with giant dollops of sour cream. There was a little leftover filling which I served over pasta the second day. Read More
