Mini Meat Turnovers

Ingredients:

1-1/4  pound  lean ground beef
1 15 ounce can  tomato sauce
2  tsp.  chili powder
2  tsp.  dried oregano, crushed
1  tsp.  garlic powder
1  Tbsp.  snipped fresh cilantro
2  10 to 12 ounce packages (20 total)  refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
Milk
Salsa (optional)

Directions:

For filling, in a large skillet cook ground beef until brown; drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, chili powder, oregano, and garlic powder.

Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro.

Grease a large baking sheet; set aside. Separate biscuits; cut each biscuit in half horizontally.

On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of biscuit dough into a 4-inch circle. Place about 1 tablespoon filling onto half of each circle. Fold opposite side of circle up and over filling.

Brush edges with a little milk; seal edges with a fork.

Place filled turnovers 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet; brush with milk. Bake in a 350° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet.

Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm. If desired, serve with salsa for dipping. Makes 40 turnovers.

Make Ahead Tip:

Cool turnovers completely on wire racks. Place in an airtight freezer container; freeze for up to 3 months.

To reheat, transfer frozen turnovers to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake, uncovered, in a 350° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through.

To Tote:

Cover hot turnovers tightly. Transport in an insulated carrier.

Tip:

If making the 40-turnover recipe, remove only one package of biscuits from the refrigerator at a time.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
