Cooking Steps

  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

  • 2

    Chop your pepper and onions and set aside.

  • 3

    In a hot, oiled pan, brown off your mince and set aside.

  • 4

    Whilst the pan is still hot, add the chopped onion and pepper to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes until they begin to soften.

  • 5

    Add your Very Lazy Garlic and cook for another minute.

  • 6

    Return your mince to the pan and add the cumin, paprika, Very Lazy Chipotle paste, tomato purée, beef stock and boiling water.

  • 7

    Allow this to bubble away until all the water has evaporated.

  • 8

    As the mixture cooks, roll out your pastry to oval shapes.

  • 9

    When the filling is ready, add spoonfuls to the centre of your pastry and fold together creating a spicy little parcel. Press the ends together with a fork and brush with the whisked egg.

  • 10

    Place in the oven and bake for around 20 - 25 minutes.

    Once golden, leave to cool for a few minutes if you can help yourself. Then it's time to tuck in.
