The filling for these taco hand pies is a simple beef and bean concoction that tastes like those cheesy bean burritos everyone loves.

To eat one hot and crispy straight from the frying pan is an out of this world experience. The few who have been privilege to these phenomena can attest that the crispy, flaky shell is what makes them superior to any other taco.

These pies remind me exactly of her tacos without all the grease!
