  1. Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring frequently to break up the meat. Add 1 cup of the salsa, taco seasoning and water according to the package directions. Cool completely.
  2. Thaw the pastry sheets at room temperature for 40 minutes or until they're easy to handle. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with vegetable cooking spray. Stir the egg and water with a fork in a small bowl.
  3. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the sheet into a 14-inch square. Cut into 4 (7-inch) squares. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet. Place about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture onto half of each square. Top each with 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Brush the edges of the pastry with water. Fold plain pastry half over meat mixture and press the edges with a fork to seal. Place the rectangles on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with the egg mixture.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Let cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Serve warm with additional salsa.

I had one Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry in the freezer to use and a half pound of taco meat in the freezer. This was a delicious meal to make with the two of them. After making the 4 foldovers, they only took about 17 minutes to bake and brown. I did let them rest about 8 minutes before plating them. Served with lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, sour cream, jalapeños and fresh salsa. A very nice alternative to a taco shell.

Instead of puff pastry, I used a can of whomp biscuits. I also used a homemade dry taco seasoning mix. This took around fifteen minutes to bake using refrigerated biscuits. I served this with mexican rice and refried beans. The boys really liked it.

This was pretty good. I could not eat a whole lot of it but I liked it and will make again. My husband enjoyed it a lot.
