Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups refrigerated taco sauce with seasoned chicken (from 18-oz container)
  • 12 cup Green Giant® Niblets® frozen corn (from 1-lb bag)
  • 1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
  • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
  • 12 cup Mexican cheese blend, finely shredded
  • 2 ounces sour cream
  • salsa or sliced ripe olives, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 375°F Spray 8 medium muffin cups with cooking spray. In 1-quart saucepan, heat taco sauce with chicken over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
  2. Unroll dough and separate into 4 rectangles; press each into 8x4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Cut each in half crosswise, making 8 squares.
