Easy Cheesy Cheese Steak Pockets #Recipe

I found a recipe a few months back and after I made it my husband said “those are like a cheesesteak sandwich.” Now I LOVE cheese steak sandwich’s so I altered the recipe and came up with this.  I call them Easy Cheesy Pockets!

So first I cooked up some hamburger meat and added chopped green chilies.  You could cut up a green or red pepper too.

Then I added some sliced mushrooms

Once my meat was cooked and drained I added cream cheese, ground cumin and chili powder.


Now for the fun part!  I took some refrigerated crescent rolls and pressed two of them together to make a rectangle.

I like mine really cheesy so I added some cheese wiz to mine (you can add real cheese, too!).  I left my husbands plain because that’s how he prefers them!

Then you add a spoonful of the cooked meat mixture.

Fold in half and seal the edges by just pinching it together.

Bake them at 375 degrees for 11-14 minutes.

Then enjoy!

Here is the full recipe and directions


Easy Cheesy Pockets


1 pound ground beef
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies (or half a green or red pepper)
1/2 package fresh mushrooms
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
3 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
Optional – cheese whiz



In a skillet, cook beef, chilies and mushrooms over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.  Drain.  Add the cream cheese, cumin and chili powder.  Cool slightly.

Separate crescent dough and connect two crescent’s together to make a rectangle.  Seal the seem by pinching it together.  Add cheese wiz if desired.  Place a spoonful of beef mixture in the middle and fold the dough in half.  Pinch the 3 sides together to seal.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown.
