Chili Calzones

If you’re tired of regular calzones, mix it up with this mini chili calzone recipe!

This recipe serves: 16

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 10 pieces of bacon – chopped
  • ½ cup of bell pepper – chopped
  • ½ cup of onion – chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of hot sauce
  • 1 package of Manning’s Chili – Original or Hot N’ Spicy – you choose!
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 – 8 ounce packages of crescent roll dough – refrigerated
  • 2 cups of shredded Cheddar Cheese


  1. Heat oven to 400°F
  2. In a large pan, cook your chopped bacon strips, bell pepper, and onion for 10 minutes or until crisp, then drain.
  3. In either the same pan or a different pan, combine your chopped mixture in with 1 cup of water, Manning’s Chili, and hot sauce. Simmer until heated. Then set aside for later.
  4. Roll out your crescent dough into a large rectangle and press over the perforations to seal. Do this for all 4 packages
  5. Cut each rectangle into 8 squares. You should have a total of 32 squares.
  6. Take 16 squares and top them with a spoonful of chili mixture and some shredded cheese. Put as much or as little cheese on there as you’d like!
  7. Take the remaining 16 squares and cover the chili and cheese mixture. Pinch the dough squares together.
  8. Put it in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Just like our other chili recipes, you can serve with sour cream or any other choice of sides!
