Chicken Taco Balls

All of us like tacos, but I don't like anything except for meat and cheese on  mine. Mike puts everything on his. When I make regular tacos he always complains because I never buy lettuce, tomato, or anything else to put on them. When I came across this recipe on pinterest I figured it would satisfy us both because it has taco sauce, which I also never use, and the crescents would make a difference too. 

1 package jumbo crescent rolls
3 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup cheddar shredded cheese
3/4 cup cooked chicken (diced or shredded)
1/3 cup taco sauce
2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix cream cheese and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese in a bowl. Stirring until smooth. 

Add taco seasoning, taco sauce and chicken to the cheese mixture. 

Place above mix onto wide end of the crescent rolls. Fold the corners in and roll it up as best as possible. Trying to enclose entire crescent. (I didn't use jumbo crescents so this part was a little messy for me)

Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese on top of each crescent and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

They were very good. I wasn't sure what to expect when I made them but next time I'll make some rice to go along with them too since they weren't very filling.
