Crescent Jalapeño Poppers

This unusual twist on chile poppers, with herbed cheese and a dollop of sweet salsa, roll up fast with prepared crescent dough.


4jalapeño chiles (about 3 inches long)

1/3cup Boursin cheese with garlic and herbs (from 5.2-oz container)

8slices packaged precooked bacon (from 2.2-oz package), halved

1can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1/2cup pineapple or fruit salsa, if desired


Heat oven to 375°F. Carefully remove stems from chiles; cut each in half lengthwise and again horizontally to make 4 pieces. Remove and discard seeds. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cheese into each chile quarter. Wrap half slice of bacon around each.

On cutting board, unroll dough; separate dough into 8 triangles. From center of longest side to opposite point, cut each triangle in half, making 16 triangles. Place chile, cheese side down, on dough triangle. Fold 1 point of triangle over filling; fold 2 remaining points over first point. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve with salsa.
