I've been making these for years! In my house we call them pasties - or meat pies. In so many many different varieties! My version is as above for mexican but I add taco seasoning to my ground beef with onions in the skillet - and I also use my own pico de gallo versus salsa. no peppers though DH wont eat 'em.

I used ground chicken instead of beef, and also added only 1/2 cup of the salsa. Instead, I added a cup of tostitos cheese and been dip. It turned out great, very flavorful. I also used the wheat grands instead of original. To flatten them out, I used a large tablespoon, and it worked perfectly. Very quick and easy recipe.

I took a little of everyone's advise, plus my own twist. I browned the ground beef, added Ortega Taco Seasoning and cooked according to their instructions, but then I added Newman's Own black bean and corn salsa, and added the Mexican cheese right into the mixture. Just add these to suit your own taste. It was delicious! What a wonderful, flexible recipe! Thanks to all of you who submit these tips!

Me and my picky eater husband made these tonite. We made them w/turkey meat, chunky salsa, green olives (his choice),black beans, and shredded cheese. I just froze the rest of the ingredients so we could make them again. Picky eater complained about chunky salsa, but he didn't complain when he wolfed them down. Before they are cooked they look small, but take them out and man they double in size! So good w/sour cream :D

I made these for my family and they loved them. Since they were really good I wanted to make them for my boyfriend. So I did but didn't tell him what was in there until he after he took a bite and he loved them. We have them a few times a month. It helps to put water along the egde of the dough to help stick the sides together once everything is inside them before you cook it.

These were awesome and they freeze really well! I used home-style buttermilk biscuits, 97% lean beef and a different kind of salsa, they didn't have Old El Paso salsa at the store; they had every other Old El Paso product, but no salsa. I also added taco seasoning mix to the beef mixture as per the other "Grands Taco Melts" recipe. A rolling pin worked better than my fingers when stretching the dough to 6 inch round. Will definitely make again!

Made this the night before. It was so delicious and so affordable! My husband loved it. We ate the leftovers of it last night and it was still just as good. Definitely will be making this again!
