DIRECTIONS

  • Cook ground beef.
  • Add onion and peppers and cook awhile longer. Stir in picante sauce, potato chips, taco seasoning, cheese and garlic. Cook until heated through.
  • Let mixture cool slightly.
  • Using one sheet of the wrappers at a time, make a pocket (you will wrap these like you used to fold the American flag when you were a Girl Scout) and spoon in some filling (about a teaspoon). Begin folding in triangles along the length of the wrapper. Before the final fold, brush the egg on the last flap to help seal things.
  • Heat oil and fry sambosas until lightly brown.
  • (If you have a deep fryer, you can fry these up faster and easier.)
  • Serve hot.
  • (This recipe makes a LOT of filling.).
