Contest-Winning Beef Stuffed Crescents

My neighbor makes these crescents using jalapenos instead of green chiles and calls them "rattlesnake bites!" I love that this recipe is so easy and has so few ingredients. I've made bundles for potlucks and family gatherings—and I never have any leftovers. —Jennifer Bumgarner, Topeka, Kansas
