  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, mix sour cream and 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning mix, stirring well. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 2
    In medium microwavable bowl, add salsa and cheese. Microwave 1 1/2 to 2 minutes uncovered on High, stirring after 1 minute, until cheese is melted. Stir in 3 1/2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning mix and the chicken until well mixed. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Separate dough into 8 triangles. On wide end of each triangle, spoon about 2 generous tablespoonfuls of the chicken mixture. Roll up, starting at wide end, gently wrapping dough around chicken mixture and rolling to opposite point. Carefully place onto cookie sheet, spacing apart.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix melted butter and remaining 1/2 teaspoon seasoning mix; brush mixture on top of crescent dough.
  • 5
    Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with seasoned sour cream. Garnish with cilantro before serving.

  • Cooling the chicken mixture before adding it to the crescent dough makes rolling them up easier and keeps the dough from getting too stretchy.

Expert Tips

  • Velveeta™ is sold in mini blocks, which are preportioned into 4-oz packages. This extends the storage life of any remaining cheese for other recipes.
  • Add sliced green onion as a garnish, or stir into sour cream dip, if desired.
