Chili Cheddar Pinwheels

Another yummy crescent roll snack that looks like it can be tinkered with if you want from taste of home.
We pretty much stuck with the recipe but may add some jalapeno pepper next time. Again this is best while hot out the oven.
1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 can 4 oz chopped green chilies drained
2 tablespoons picante sauce(we used mild as it was for other people but we might go with a hotter one for ourselves)
12 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
2 tubes crescent rolls
additional chili powder optional
In a large bowl beat cream until smooth then beat in the cheddar cheese,chilies picante sauce,chili powder,garlic and onion powder until blended.
Separate each tube of crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles and press perforations to seal. Spread about 1/4 cup of mixture over each rectangle. Roll up jelly roll style starting with short side. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least one hour.
(We felt it needed to be longer in the fridge)
Cut each roll into eight to ten slices and place on ungreased baking sheet
Sprinkle with extra chili powder if you want.
bake in pre heated oven at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or till golden brown. we found it was longer than 10 minutes.
Makes about 64 goodies.
