You may have noticed,  we love cooking food that is easy to make and doesn’t require hours spent slaving over a hot stove.  Take it one step better, and make food that’s easy to eat with your fingers and my family is in heaven. You can’t beat food you can eat with your fingers.

This recipe takes something as good as chicken enchiladas and turns them into finger food! These were perfect for dinner, by using the jumbo size crescent rolls.

They would also make great party appetizers by using the smaller size crescent rolls. – either way, you put them together just the same.
