I am a fan of jalapeno poppers, so naturally I try to use the same flavors in new ways. These Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls do just that and are a perfect appetizer or snack, especially for game day.
These Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls are incredibly easy and fast to make. They are also a great option to take over to a party or sport event, like the Super Bowl, because they hold over well. Easily control the heat level by adding more jalapenos for a spicy snack.
Be prepared to make a lot of these, more than you think is necessary, because they just DISAPPEAR. And really quickly. They are so addicting and full of so many amazing flavors, they are always a hit.
Anytime I bake something, I use my silicone baking mats. They are a fantastic way to get a non-stick surface, they go in the dishwasher, and you won’t go through as much tin foil or parchment paper, making them eco-friendly!

When I was a kid, I loved rolling up crescent rolls for dinner. These Jalapeno Popper Crescent Rolls are a great way to get your own kids in the kitchen! They can roll the dough, mix the filling, and even spread it out.
Sprinkle some extra cheese on top if you wish! Buttery, cheesy, flaky, spicy goodness. Sign me up.
