This is a very yummy recipe that Beau came up with.  Sometimes it is more spicier than the others, but it is always very good. This is one of the few meals we work together on because there is so much going on at once.  I wish we made it more often.

1/2 teaspoon garlic

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning

taco or cheddar cheese(as much as you’d like)

1 tube of crescent rolls

1/2 loaf of french bread


Dice chicken and cook till no longer pink.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix cream cheese, chili powder, crushed red pepper, cajun seasoning and garlic in a bowl. Spread out crescent roll dough into two squares on a greased cookie sheet. Take the mixture and spread it onto the french bread and on only one crescent roll square(the other will be used to cover it).  Place chicken on top.  Sprinkle cheese on top. Then place the other crescent roll square on top and seal edges.  Put in oven until brown.  (Note: The french bread will be done much sooner than the crescent rolls.  Also, make sure to slice the crescent rolls in order to make them look like ribs!)
