Joan’s Taco Bombs
Servings: 8 Bombs
Little hand pies, packed full of flavour, low carb and a lot of fun to make
Omnia stove top oven, with rack and parchment round (for the ovenless, otherwise optional)
Baking sheet lined with parchment (for you oven folks)
Bowl for making dough (if making it from scratch)
- 1 Cup All purpose flour Plus more for rolling out
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Cooking oil
- 1 Cup Plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 Lb Lean ground beef
- 1/2 Tsp Cumin
- 1/2 Tsp Chili powder
- 1/2 Tsp Garlic powder
- 1/2 Cup Chopped mushrooms
- 1/2 Cup Chopped red pepper
- 1/2 Cup Corn kernels Frozen, fresh or canned (drained if canned)
- 1/2 Cup Salsa
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 1/4 Cup Grated cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 Egg
- 8 Pickled jalapeno slices
In mixing bowl add flour (with added baking powder and salt if using regular all-purpose flour)
Mix in yogurt and blend until dough comes together, adding more flour a tbsp at a time until dough is no longer sticky. Set aside while you cook the filling.
In the skillet, heat oil and cook the ground meat with spices until meat is cooked through
Add mushrooms, red pepper, corn and salsa and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed. You want the mixture to be moist but not soggy.
Season to taste with salt and peppeR and remove from heat
On a floured surface dump dough and divide into individual portions. I divided mine into 8 little balls.
Individually roll out each ball into circles about six inches in diameter, dusting with flour if needed.
Place 1 tbsp grated cheese in the centre of each.
Place 1/4 cup of meat mixture in the middle on top of the cheese.
Gather the dough up and around the filling, pinching to seal.
In a small bowl whisk egg with 1 tbsp water.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese equally over the top of each bomb and top each with a pickled jalapeno slice
Place bombs seam side down in prepared baking pan and brush each with egg wash
For conventional oven users
Cook in pre-heated 425 ° F(218 deg C) oven until nicley browned.
Serve with extra salsa, guacamole and a nice crispy side salad
These can be nicely re-heated in your omnia oven set on low or in a toaster.
