Holiday Chicken Ranch Stuffed Rolls are a delicious and family-friendly appetizer. Great for serving all year around, these tasty treats are even better when shaped into a festive Christmas Tree.
The holiday season is in full swing, and it is all about the sweets. I love spending time in the kitchen baking dozens upon dozens of Christmas cookies, making batches of fudge and concocting all sorts of edible gifts. With such an abundance of decadent treats at this time of year, whipping up a savory, yet festive dish is a welcome change.
These Holiday Chicken Ranch Stuffed Rolls are truly tasty snack to serve up at all your holiday gatherings! The Christmas tree shape is a real show-stopper, yet is actually quite easy to make. And these crave-worthy holiday rolls are full of bold, adventurous flavor. The smoky bacon and creamy ranch chicken filling delivers a zesty little kick, thanks to the addition of RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles, an ingredient that I always stock up on when I'm at Walmart. This appetizer is just the thing to warm you up on when it's cold outside.
