Serves: 4


  • 2 rounds (9 inches) pie dough
  • 1⁄4 cup diced onion
  • 1⁄2 cup cooked ground beef
  • 1⁄2 cup refried beans
  • 1⁄2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 1 large egg


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut 3-inch circles out of the pie dough and place them on two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  • Combine the onion, ground beef, refried beans, cheddar cheese, and taco seasoning in a large bowl. Put a spoonful of the mixture in the middle of each dough circle.
  • Beat egg with 1 tablespoon water. Brush the edges of the dough circles with egg mixture, fold the dough over to make a half circle, and press the edges to seal. Use your fingers or a fork to crimp the edges. Brush the tops of the pasties with the beaten egg mixture.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are golden. Serve warm.
