Green Chile Pizza Rolls

I grew up in New Mexico, so it's only natural that I love southwestern flavors. One of my very favorite things is green chile. I always have several cans of it on hand, and crave the flavors from the Mexican restaurants I grew up going to. In need of an appetizer recently, my mind immediately went to green chile. Pull some Rhodes rolls out of the freezer, grab a couple of ingredients, and before you know it, you have a delicious appetizer that any green chile lover will flock to. These would be a perfect addition to Mexican dinner night at home, too! Here is how you make them:

 

 

All you need is 8 Rhodes rolls, thawed but still cold, a can of diced green chiles, some grated Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro and green onion.

 

 

In a small bowl, mix together the green chile, cheese, cilantro and green onion.

 

 

Take each roll and cut it in half. Roll each half into a circle, and press out to make a small circle, about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

 

 

Add about 2 teaspoons of the filling to the center of each circle of dough.

 

 

And then pinch together the edges to form a little roll.

 

 

Place the rolls in a baking dish, seam side down. Repeat until you've used all of the dough and all of the filling.

 

 

When all of the rolls are made, brush some olive oil on top of the rolls. Bake them up, and that's it! An easy, delicious, southwestern style appetizer that you will love!

These look delicious! I'm assuming once filled, the rolls are not left to rise - or are they?

Thanks,
