Baked Chilis and Cheese Popover Hors d'Oeuvres

Hi gang! This is a *very* simple recipe which will astound your guests and delight your pallet!


  • Two Pillsbury Cresent Roll Tubes (refrigerated section)
  • One stick of Butter
  • Chili peppers (you pick the heat level, and the state of the chili. They can be whole, (my fave) halved, roasted, diced, or even powdered!)
  • Block of cheese (I prefer pepper jack, or cheddar - it's gonna melt!)


  1. Unroll the Pillsbury dough and cut each pre-perfed triangle into three sections, still triangles.
  2. Place a chile, or some chiles, etc, and a chunk of cheese in the center of a triangle.
  3. Roll it up, and fold-over the side pieces, pinching them closed.
  4. Bake on a greased cookie sheet according to the directions on the package.
  5. The last two minutes or so, brush some melted butter on the tops to make them golden brown.
  6. Let 'em cool to the touch, and serve just warm. Let the chilis bring the heat!

ENJOY! These things take less than ten minutes, and they ROCK!
