The Spicy Bite: Jalapeño Bites

Need an appetizer for a party? or maybe something to snack on? These bites are perfect. You create the sizes so if you want a lot of bite size pieces cut them smaller. Simple. I have made these a dozen times and can finally make them without looking anything up like th amount of cream cheese to use.

If your not a fan of spice use some chopped green chilis which are much milder. I prefer the spice so i use a lot of Jalapeños. Check out the original recipe at Tasty Kitchen . I love the way she post exactly whats going on in her head as she types. My kind of lady.



  • 8oz package Cream Cheese, cubed
  • 4 ounces Canned, Diced Jalapenos or Green Chilies
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  •  Tube of Refrigerated Crescent Rolls


These can make anywhere from 18-32 bites depending on size.

Preheat oven 375 degrees F.

Throw about 3/4 of the cream cheese into a bowl. Add 3/4th (more/less) of thecan of diced jalapeños. Add sugar.

Take your fork and mash it all up really well. I used a spoon to smash it up and make sure it was mixed well. Set aside.

Open up your tube of crescent rolls and place on your cutting board. Separate them into two rectangles. Now pinch together the perforations to create two rectangles.

With a spoon spread half of the cream cheese mixture onto one of the rectangles and the remaining onto the other.

Once you’ve spread your half portion of cream cheese on one of your rectangles, start with the LONG end of the roll, and get to rolling.

Cut each roll into approx. 16 pieces..

Place your pieces, cream cheese laying face up on a sprayed baking sheet. Bake 11-13 minutes. Serve.
