Ingredients

3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
8 oz Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend, shredded
4 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 can (4.5 oz) green chilies, diced
1 Tbsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 (14 oz) pkg refrigerated pie dough


Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cheeses, chili peppers, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
Roll out the pie dough and cut out circles, making a total of 12 circles (reuse pie dough between the circles, but be careful not to over-handle it).
Place the pie dough circles on the prepared pan and evenly divide the chicken mixture onto the center of each circle.
Fold the dough circles in half and crimp the edges.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve hot.
