Cheesy Venison Hot Pockets


  • 1 pound ground venison – drained
  • Half block Velveeta Queso cheese
  • Half block cream cheese
  • 1 can green chilis
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • Dash of chili powder
  • Dash of cumin
  • 2 tubes crescent rolls

To get this easy recipe started, melt the queso in a large bowl, then combine with the cooked and drained venison. Add in the cream cheese, chilis, ranch mix, cumin, and chili powder in a large pan, or same pan that was used to cook the venison, and mix well.

Next, spoon the mixture on the crescent rolls on top of greased pan. Wrap them into pockets and bake them in the oven for about 12 to 14 minutes at 375.

Just be careful, you might have to make a bunch because these will go quick. Enjoy!
