Original recipe makes 24



Pastry: Preheat the oven to 400 deg F. To make the dough: place the flour and salt in a large bowl; mix well. Cut the shortening into small pieces about the size of walnuts. Add to the flour and, using your fingers, rub the flour and shortening together, making a coarse, mealy dough. Add the ice water and gather the dough into a ball. The dough should be firm and not sticky. If the dough is too dry, add a little more water, but if the dough is too sticky, add just enough flour to make it form a ball. Divide the dough into 2 equal balls and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days. To make the filling: in a large skillet, cook the onion, garlic, and chilies in the oil over moderate heat for about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add the beef, herbs, spices, bell pepper, and tomatoes, and cook over high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly until the mixture is thick and saucy. Add the green onions and cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and cool to room temperature. To assemble the patties: on a lightly floured surface, divide each ball into 2 equal balls, so that you have 4 equal balls. Flatten into disc shapes, then divide each disc into 6 equal pieces and roll each into a ball. Roll each ball into a 3 1/2 inch diameter circle. Brush the edges with beaten egg. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling on one side of each circle, leaving a 1/4 inch border. Fold the dough over, making a half-moon shape. Seal the edges with the tines of a fork, and brush with the remaining egg. Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the patties are golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Source: Rolled, Wrapped, and Stuffed by Janet Hazen Posted by Linda Davis CHILE-HEADS ARCHIVES From the Chile-Heads recipe list.
