Servings: 8 servings
- 1 lb ground venison
- 8 oz cream cheese plain, softened at room temperature
- 1/2 bunch green onions chopped
- 1/2 red onion chopped
- 1-2 jalapenos diced
- 2 package crescent rolls
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper more if you like spicy
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare two medium baking sheets with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Season venison with chili powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Cook in medium skillet over medium high heat until cooked through.
Drain any grease if needed.
Transfer cooked venison to a large bowl with softened cream cheese and add chopped green onion, red onion, yellow onion, jalapeno and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Using a spoon, stir well until ingredients are evenly distributed and cream cheese is mixed in.
Take crescent rolls out of packaging and lay each one flat on your baking sheets. Spoon about 1/3 cup of filling onto each roll, until all 8 are filled evenly.
Fold each corner of the roll to the center and press down so it is securely closed. It is okay if there is some visible filling between corners.
Place baking sheets in the oven for 8-12 minutes (or per package instructions) and remove from oven when the crescent rolls are golden brown.
Serve hot. Serve alongside roasted vegetables, cauliflower mashed potatoes and/or a side salad.
Store any leftovers in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Microwave to reheat.
