Chili Chicken Sandwiches

Hello to all of you!
My little blog is slowly growing, and it's all thanks to you!!
Each day, I love getting on and seeing everyone who is supporting me.
It really means a lot, and I hope that you are finding some new recipes
and craft ideas.
 (Although, I haven't been posting a lot of crafting items lately...don't worry, they'll come!)

I'm all about finding quick and easy dinner ideas.
There are some days where I don't mind working real hard at cooking dinner,
and quite frankly, there are other days
that I just want something easy and delicious to make.

I totally scored when  I found this recipe for Chili Chicken Sandwiches.

Yes, those are homemade rolls, and I'll share the recipe later. :)
But here's the recipe for the filling:

*1 pckg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
*2 cups cubed cooked chicken
*1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies
3 TBSP chopped green onions
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. chili powder
*hard dinner rolls

*In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. 
Stir in the chicken, cheddar cheese, chilies, onions, and seasonings.
Cut top fourths off of rolls; carefully hollow out the bottom roll,
leaving just a little bit of the roll. 
(Discard the removed bread or save it for another use.)
Fill bottom portions with the chicken mixture and replace the tops.

*Place on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 5-7 minutes
or until golden brown.

Now, I'll be honest with you...
I was too lazy to bake them in the oven, so I just slapped them in the microwave 
for about a minute or so. 

When I made the rolls, I made a couple of smaller ones for my kids.
They loved it, and I hope you do too!
