Rattlesnake Bites

I saw this one a while back on Pinterest and have been waiting for a good time to try it. I finally made it last night while hanging with the boys. It was a hit! It's called "rattlesnake bites" because it has a little bit of a bite to it. I actually divided this recipe in half, and once the meat was browned, added all ingredients but the jalapeños to my own separate batch because I am not a huge fan of spicy food. Here is the original recipe. I put my own special twist on it, too.

Serves: 8
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes

-1 8oz package of cream cheese
-1 lb ground beef
-1 package of taco seasoning
-2 packages of crescent roll dough
-1/4 tsp chili powder
-1 can or jar of jalapeños

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Brown hamburger meat in a pan. Pour out excess fat.

2. Stir in taco mix (per package directions, I needed to add 3/4 cup water also).

3. Cube the cream cheese.

4. Add cream cheese, chili powder, and jalapeños to the meat and stir well.

5. Lay out the crescent rolls on a baking pan. Spoon about 1 and a half spoonfuls of the meat mixture onto each roll.

6. Roll each crescent roll up and pinch the edges shut.

7. Bake for 11-14 minutes, until golden brown.
