    WhoKnew?'s Note:

    Our family loves these little 'mock hotpockets' and they come together really quickly. Add a side of salsa & fat-free sour cream for an easy, healthy lunch, or serve as an appetizer. There are many variations for these and they would be great for a lunchbox. These can be baked, then frozen, and reheated in the microwave. Adapted from an idea I saw in Quick Cooking that called for a can of bean dip in place of the bean mixture I use.

      I made the spicy bean filling and we thought it was really good. Using a pre-made pie crust makes these go together very quickly. I made the salsa/sour cream mixture for dipping. I did have leftover bean filling and I spread it on a plate, topped it with cheese and microwaved until the cheese was melted. Served with tortilla chips and it was inhaled. I will be trying the bean filling in burritos too.
