Chicken Enchilada Ring

Today for lunch I decided to make my son Justin's favorite Pampered Chef meal.  Now, some of you might already have seen this recipe before and are going "Hey" that's not the recipe I have, but I do this quite often.  I changed the recipe to fit my life which is what I personally think we all should do.  So here is my version of the Chicken Enchilada Ring.

Here's what you need:

2 chicken breasts boiled and chopped (or as you can see like I used) 2 large cans white meat chicken, drained
1 4oz can sliced olives
1 4 oz can green chilies
2 cups colby jack or 1 cup each cheddar and monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbl. southwestern seasoning (Pampered chef)
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 lime, juiced
2 packages crescent rolls
salsa, sour cream, guacamole optional for serving

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Drain the chicken.  Measure all the ingredients and put in a medium bowl.  Now the fun part...
Place some tortilla chips in a resealable plastic bag and roll the days aggression's out of them with a rolling pin.... You will need 1 cup total crushed chips.  Add 3/4 cup to the mixture and reserve the rest.

Mix until well combined.  Set aside.
On a round baking stone or a large baking sheet, lined with parchment, pour the remaining crushed chips in a circle with about a 6" opening in the center.
Lay the crescent roll pieces in a pretty sunflower design; or just a plain ol' circle and smush (I love that word) together the inside edges and press the pieces into the chips.
Using a large scoop; or the best tools God gave us, clean hands, fill the ring right next to the inside edge all the way around evenly.
Fold up and over the filling all the crescent pieces and tuck under the inside edge.  Press any remaining chips into the top of the crescents.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Great served with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.
And this is what it looks like when done.....

Now stop reading and go make one!

Serves 6 - 8
