Quick Mexican Pies

/, Lunchbox/Quick Mexican Pies

As I posted yesterday Im so in love with my cheap pie maker.

Something I always keep in the freezer is puff pastry for a quick meal using up leftover from a previous night that doesn’t quite stretch to enough meals for the family. A little bit of left over mince can make 4 pies easily!  You can of course make your own rough puff pastry in the tmx however I often don’t have enough time for that unless making a large family sized pie.

This recipe is so simple I don’t even need to write it up in a recipe format. To make four pies all you need is two sheets of puff pastry and 1 cup of mince of choice. Yesterday I used a little grated cheese, a tablespoon of salsa and 1/4 cup of leftover mince from my Veggie Packed Beef Nachos for each pie.

I serve with salad and a little sour cream and salsa on the side of these to make a complete meal. Its yummy to dip the pie into the sour cream and salsa.

My hidden Veggie Spaghetti Sauce would also make a delicious filling.
