Put a fun twist on taco night with hand pies full of your favorite taco fillings
It's easy to turn a routine meal into a fun dinner. Just skip the taco shells and tortillas, and use puff pastry along with simple taco staples.
Puff pastry dough is simply rolled out and filled with cooked turkey taco meat, refried beans, a bit of cheese and a dollop of sour cream for a new and improved way to eat your favorite meal.
To keep this dinner speedy, you can prepare your taco meat a day or two in advance so it's ready when you are to make your hand pies.
You can also make these vegetarian by skipping on the meat altogether and adding extra beans, cooked diced potatoes or tomatoes. Another bonus: These hand pies freeze well, making them a handy, homemade after-school snack or quick, ready-made meal.
