Every now and then I make something that I know is going to be an instant home-run in my house.  Usually it’s something super easy to whip together with simple ingredients that makes it a dish my husband or Bella ask for all the time.  My Breakfast Cheesecake and Easy Crockpot BBQ Sliders are definitely on that list.

We’ve been experiencing a serious cold front lately and I’ve been serving warm-you-up meals for the past few days- one of those being Frito Chili Pies.   As I was eating a big bowl of warm homemade chili, I started thinking about warm-you-up appetizers and fun game day food.  I love the idea of smaller individual servings for a crowd, and Pillsbury Crescent Rounds were the perfect solution.  Frito Chili Pie- delicious.  Crescent Rolls- delicious.  Mini Frito Chili Pies?  I’m telling you, this combo was meant to be.  And SO easy to make.

I used Pillsbury Crescent Rounds for this, exactly like I did my Pumpkin Cheesecake Rolls, because I find it easier to form the little cups.  Just take them out of the tube, put your thumb in the center and press down to form a cup.  I place them inside of a muffin tin so they keep their shape while baking.  These could also be topped with jalapenos or onions, whatever you like to add to your chili pies!  I used Frito’s but you could also use any variety of corn or tortilla chips.
