    I grabbed this one from an e-mailed newsletter from the That's My Home! website. I will definately be making these for my Oscar Party. This looks like it should be done early in the day, so plan accordingly.

      I prepared these as part of the snack feast for our Super Bowl party. Using only a tablespoon of filling per puff of pastry, I had a great deal of filling left over. However, I think that it will be a head-start on enchiladas for dinner tomorrow. I omitted the celery and upped the cumin and chili powder in the filling and used a spicy pepper jack cheese to up the flavor. I had some difficulty with sealing the puffs prior to baking, but everything resolved itself in the oven. The dough cooked together and puffed beautifully. I served these with my homemade canned salsa from my summer tomatoes. The plate was empty at the end of the evening.
