These Green Chile and Bacon Crescent Rolls are brought to you in collaboration with General Mills® to help bring you easy recipes to include in your holiday traditions! As always, the recipe and opinions in this post are my own.
With the holidays fast approaching, many of us are gearing up for traditional celebrations, whether it's our own traditions or traditions as hold with family or with friends. This year Pillsbury® wants us to share our traditions as well as make new traditions!
It seems like our Christmas traditions grow every year! Right now, our current tradition is to celebrate Christmas both on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day! On Christmas Eve, we have brunch at my parents with just my immediate family where my mom makes prime rib, then we go up to Joe's parents' in Santa Fe for an open house where all of their family and friends gather for frito pies and posole. Then on Christmas Day, Joe's mom makes a traditional meal for a smaller gathering and then we head back to my family's for Christmas Dinner with my extended family where we usually have enchiladas! Now that my brother owns a house, he's been hosting Christmas Dinner and we've added on a white elephant exchange! Those are two busy days, no?
With so much going on, I'm finding myself looking for more simple and easy dishes to make and incorporate. Our families hold tight to traditional foods, but we totally embrace the addition of a new dish!
Today I am sharing with you these Green Chile and Bacon Crescent Rolls. These are a twist on the popular tortilla spirals filled with cream cheese and jalapenos-- or if you're in New Mexico, green chile! I decided to change things up a little bit and add bacon for some added protein, and use Pillsbury® Cresecents that I found at Walmart as the bread! And while Joe may disagree with me, I know many of you will agree that everything is better with bacon!
The great thing about these rolls is that they are so versatile. Use turkey bacon, sausage, leftover turkey or ham, or add some scrambled eggs to make these a little more hearty for a breakfast! Or add some jam to make these rolls sweet and savory!
These Green Chile and Bacon Crescent Rolls are great to have for a simple breakfast, an easy snack or appetizer, or a great side bread to serve with your meal! And they are so good and easy to prepare, you'll make them year-round and not just for the holidays!

Green Chile and Bacon Crescent Rolls
A Tortillas and Honey original recipe
2 8-oz. packages of Pillsbury® Crescents
1/3 c. cream cheese, at room temperature
8 slices of bacon, roughly chopped
1/2 c. fire roasted green chile, peeled, seeded, and roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 375.
Spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
Remove both rolls of dough from the package and unroll both of the large sheets of dough. With a knife, gently follow the seams of the dough, separating the dough into 16 triangles.
Spread cream cheese evenly on both of the sheets of dough, followed by sprinkling the bacon pieces and green chile on top of the dough.
Gently roll up each of the triangles, starting opposite of the triangle tip, then ending with the tip of the dough. Place on prepared sheets and bake 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are a deep golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
Makes 16 rolls.
