How To: Taco Pop Tarts


As you know, we've been trying to save money and cook more at home. This was a dish planned for last week but never got round to doing it. My best friend, Rochelle, recently came back from America and as the amazing girl she is, she brought me back a whole bag of goodies; American crisps, sweets, pop tarts (the sweet kind), cake mix and a Victoria Secret bra ;) Isn't she just amazing!?

So, we thought this would be a great time to make these babies and we are so happy they turned out alright, since we've never made them before but we had a great approval from our honoured guest!
Find below how we made these!

Serves: 12 Taco Pop Tarts | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 20 -25 minutes

Ingredients:
- 2 packets of ready made pastry 
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
- 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
- 1 cup canned black beans, drained
- 1 cup shredded cheddar
- 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
- Sesame seeds for sprinkling

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Working with one crust at a time, unroll onto your work surface and cut into six 3″ x 4″ rectangles. Repeat with the remaining crusts; cover with a towel to keep from drying out.
3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil until hot but not smoking. Sauté the
onion for 5 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until completely cooked through (no pink remaining). Add the taco seasoning and stir to combine. Add the corn and beans and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool until warm.

4. Place six pie crust rectangles on one of your prepared baking sheets. Top with a spoonful of the beef filling, followed by a handful of shredded cheese. Top with six more crusts and gently press around the edges. Use a fork to crimp and seal; make a few small incisions in the top to allow steam to escape. Brush with some of the beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Repeat with remaining crusts and fillings.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    1. I've had that reaction my everyone I've mentioned that we'll be making these, but they were so easy to make and a nice change to typical taco wraps - it's a bit fiddly but so worth to make them! Let us know if you do!

      Thank you for reading and commenting☺️💓

  2. These look amazing. I'm extremely guilty of taking the easy option and just ordering food or eating out or just buying something that is ready made. One of my bad habits that I really need to shift.

    Looks like I've found my inspiration for meal ideas now.
