1/2 cup red kidney beans

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms

1 tablespoon ketchup

2 teaspoons hot sauce

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 (8-ounce) can reduced-fat crescent roll dough

1/4 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the crescent roll dough and cheese.
  3. Press 2 crescent-roll triangles together and roll them out to make a rectangle about 5 by 4 inches. Cut crosswise into 3 even pieces. Repeat with remaining dough to make a total of 12 pieces.
  4. Spoon a little of the bean mixture onto the center of each piece of dough and top with a little cheddar. Fold the dough around the filling and pinch the ends together to seal.
  5. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until browned, about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
