DIRECTIONS

  • Cut habanero in half. Seed one half of pepper, and leave seeds in other half. Mince both pepper halves. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add minced habanero, onion, and garlic to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
  • Add chicken; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add carrot; cook 2 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add lime juice and vinegar, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  • Add green onions and next 6 ingredients (through nutmeg); stir well. Remove from heat; cool mixture to room temperature.
  • Place cooled chicken mixture in a food processor; process until almost smooth (mixture will begin to clump).
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Roll puff pastry into a 15 x 12–inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut puff pastry into 20 (3-inch) squares. Combine egg and water, stirring with a whisk. Brush egg mixture along edges of pastry squares; spoon about 1 scant tablespoon filling in center of each pastry square.
  • Fold each pastry square in half; press edges closed with tines of a fork.
  • Brush top with egg wash; arrange 1 inch apart on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
