My husband loved it as written. I tried again with some leftover seasoned carne asada meat and followed the rest of the instructions. Great appetizer either way.

We enjoyed these little turnovers served with sour cream and some salsa on the side. I added finely chopped onion and a little bit of garlic instead of the powder, some dried oregano and touch of cumin. These were good, but not as flavourful as I would like, next time I would add my own taco seasonings. Thanks Nonnie for a simple little dinner with salad!
