Recipe: Jalapeno Cheddar Cream Cheese Bites

These are so good, one of my favorites as a side to a meal or as an appetizer.
4oz Cream Cheese (1/2 of regular package)
1/2 cup of Cheddar
1 jalapeno minced
1 package of crescent rolls

Take the 4oz of your cream cheese and set aside to get to room temperature. Once that is done (or you can put it in microwave to soften it) combine the cream cheese, cheddar, and jalapeno in a bowl and mix together.

Take your crescent roll and divide it into two long triangles, try to pinch together all the pre-cut lines as best as you can.

Spread your cheese/pepper mixture over both rectangles evenly.

Roll up your rectangles long ways (I guess you can do them the other way as well, but they won’t be bites).

Cut into 1-1.5 inch pieces and put on a cookie/baking sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 9-10 minutes, just keep an eye on them.

  34. Christina Strapp says:

    My husband would love these! I will be giving these a try, thank you for sharing.

  35. These sound so much easier to make than I thought they would be and they sound delicious. I love cream cheese and jalapenos!!

  37. Sounds so yummy! I think I’ll make them as an app for my next party.

  38. william saylor says:

    These look so yummy. I love anything that has jalapeno and cheddar in it. I will be making theses for our next get together with family and friends.

  39. Michelle F. says:

    Love that you use crescent rolls!

  40. Sherry Compton says:

    I just had jalapeño cheddar cream cheese tonight on read. It’s delicious! I’m sure these are too. Plus they would be something different to take to work.

  41. Rebecca Parsons says:

    This sounds delicious and it would be great if it had bacon bits in it too.

  42. Autumn Hudson says:

    I am usually not a fan of dealing with crescent rolls, but I think my husband would love these!! Thanks for the recipe!! This would be something new and fun to take to a carry in/pot luck also!

  43. I’m def making these for an upcoming party. Might even make them with flour tortillas to make pinwheels +!

  44. Jennifer Aldridge says:

    Okay, I’m sold on anything containing jalapeno and cream cheese. These look super delicious and easy peasy! Adding to the menu for Labor Day

  45. These look soooooooo delicious, I cannot wait to try making them! You know what? I bet you could put some bacon bits in at the point where you ‘spread your cheese/pepper mixture over both rectangles’. Of course the bacon would be pre-cooked, I would use turkey bacon. Yummy!!

  46. Deborah D says:

    These look really delicious. I love spicy hot foods the spicier the better.

  47. These sound delicious,I will be trying them.

  48. Terrie Swanson says:

    I try to find simple yet wonderful new recipes each year to try during the Christmas season when my kids come home. I love to hear their rave reviews and talk about how mom went all out for them. I relish the fact that the recipes I use are so simple but delicious. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE RECIPES! I of course will have to do a try out recipe in the near future first to make sure it is as delicious as it sounds. Ha Ha!

  49. Kelley H. says:

    Those look so yummy and so easy to make that I just might be able to find the time to actually do it! Def. going to give it a try!

  50. Wow – what a great appetizer, snack or treat with lunch or dinner! so quick and easy, but they look like you labored in love in the kitchen for a long time! I love all these ingredients – nice to put them together like this!

  51. Jalapeno Poppers are expensive and not so yummy in the freezer case, I didn’t know that they were so easy to make. Thanks for this recipe and especially the nice illustrations, I will certainly try it.

  52. Kassi Fouts says:

    I make something very similar to these. I love this type of app because you can change the cream cheese mixture depending on what you have on hand.

  53. These look like the perfect football snack!! yummy will have to try!

  54. Jessica Smith says:

    These look pretty easy to make and absolutely delicious! I’ve been craving spicy stuff through my entire pregnancy (once the morning sickness ended anyway) and have an entire jar of jalapenos that I could use just for this! Awesome 🙂

  55. What a quick and tasty snack! I would really like to try these, the family would love them!

  56. These look so good. Unfortunately, I am the only one in my family of 4 (almost 5!) that likes hot things. But I could totally make these and eat them all myself =)

  57. These too will be great for football season!

  58. Oh yum. Maybe I can make these and not have to drive to Sonic for their greasy, overpriced ones. I don’t like them with just cream cheese, but I should like these since there’s also cheddar.

  59. Bethany Saldana says:

    Ooh this looks delicious! I’ve done a recipe similar to this, but I put chicken & cream cheese in. I might go ahead & add jalapeño now, too! or just make these for popping! delicious!

  60. Tiffany Darling says:

    Thank you for this recipe! I have been looking for something new and different to try and I think my hubby would love this just as much I would! We both love spicy food! Gonna try these tonight!!!

  61. These look so cute and would be a great party appetizer. I love jalapeno poppers and these look like they would be less messy.

  62. Jessica Strudthoff says:

    These look so easy and so tasty. I bet you could substitute all kinds of things for different flavors.

  63. These look yummy! I don’t think my hubby would like them (hates anything spicy!) but I’d love these as an appetizer. I might do green chiles instead of jalapenos though (just a personal preference!!). I wonder what it’d be like the add chicken into!! Hmm that’s an idea..

  64. Sherry Compton says:

    A great game day snack. We took jalapeño peppers, cut them in half, stuffed with creamy cheese, and rolled in crescent dough. Thanks for the idea. The cheese helps smooth out the heat of the pepper.

  65. This looks really quick and easy, I am going to try them for my barefootbooks launch party on sunday! I think that they would be good with bacon bits rather than hot peppers, I have to cater to some young taste buds.

  66. tiffany dover says:

    yes yes yes! I’ve always wondered how to make these at home! Thank you so much for posting this recipe. My hubby will love me forever!

  67. Michelle S says:

    I totally need to go back to the grocery store for these ingredients…in heaven! I am also going to add hot sauce to these to fire them up even more!

  68. I am always looking for quick easy appetizer/snacks. These sound awesome. I wonder if they would work with chopped olives or bacon or something instead of the jalapenos…

  69. Mmm these look awesome! Will have to try to make gluten free…they’re too awesome not to try it!

  70. Kristen Coronado says:

    I am not a fan of really spicy things but I love jalapeno poppers and these look delish! I think these will be my go to superbowl recipe! Seems like a crowd pleaser and easy to boot! Thanks so much!

  73. Alejandra Carrillo says:

    These look sooo good! I love everything in the ingredients list lol jalapenos and cream cheese?! Double delicious! They look super easy to make too. 🙂 Will def try this.

  74. Tiffany F says:

    These look super yummy. My husband loves anything jalapeno and anything cheesy so these would be a great snack to make for him. I on the other hand do not enjoy anything spicy so not too sure I would be a fan of them. Will have to give them a try and find out, they look pretty easy and inexpensive to make. Thanks for the review / recipe !!

  75. These look like a perfect game day snack! My husband loves munchies and I love hot food, so I may try this recipe today! Thanks!

  84. We do bites with croissant dough all the time with my LO; in fact, he does most of the work and I bake them. I like the cream cheese idea; we have tried other cheeses. Perhaps with strawberries and a little sugar for dessert 😉

  85. Elizabeth Hitchcock says:

    Neat idea! My 2 year old loves jalapeno poppers (anything spicy!). I wonder how this would do with other fillings, can’t wait to try it out!

  86. 1christybrown says:

    I could easily make a meal of these. Making me hungry just thinking about making them. much easier than regular poppers.

  87. How easy! I made something very similar this past weekend but I used poblano peppers, goat cheese and breadcrumbs. Sautéed it in Olive oil and viola! I roasted the skin off the peppers first then peeled the skin off and cut out the core! I’m going to try this one next! Looks easier!

  88. These look really great. We were just talking about getting stuffed jalapeno poppers in my family. Maybe I’ll try to make these this weekend. Or more likely, have the man-creature do it.

  89. OHHH These could be trouble in my house! What an awesome treat for gatherings. I’m gonna tweak the recipe a touch, but thanks for the awesome bones to work with!

  90. It sounds good. I love hot pepper. The combo of the heat and creaminess of the cheese sounds like a perfect blend.

  91. I love those
