 Bite-Size Taco Turnovers Recipe


Bite-Size Taco Turnovers

1/2 pound ground beef

1/4 cup taco sauce

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 10-ounce package refrigerated pizza dough

1/4 cup shredded American cheese or cheddar cheese

1 egg

1 teaspoon water

For filling, cook ground beef in a small skillet until brown. Drain off fat. Stir in taco sauce, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Set aside.

Unroll pizza dough. Roll dough into a 14 x 10-1/2-inch rectangle. Cut into twelve 3-1/2-inch squares. Divide filling among dough squares. Sprinkle with cheese. Brush edges with water. Lift one corner of each square and stretch dough to the opposite corner, making a triangle. Press edges well with a fork to seal.

Arrange on a greased baking sheet. Prick with fork. Combine egg and the 1 teaspoon water; brush onto turnovers. Bake in a 425 degree F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
