Taco Pop Tarts

 4 boxes refrigerated pie crusts (total of 8 pie crusts), at room temperature
 1 tbsp Colavita Olive Oil
 ½ lb ground beef
 ½ tsp chili powder
 ½ tsp cumin
 ½ tsp onion powder
 ¼ tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp oregano
 ½ tsp salt
 1 tsp pepper
 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
 1 cup canned black beans, drained
 1 cup shredded cheddar
 1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp water
1

Preheat oven to 350° F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2

Working with one crust at a time, unroll onto your work surface and cut into six 3″ x 4″ rectangles. Repeat with the remaining crusts; cover with a towel to keep from drying out.

3

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until completely cooked through (no pink remaining about 10 minutes). Add all the seasonings and stir to combine. Add the corn and beans and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Remove from heat and let cool until warm.

4

Place six pie crust rectangles on one of your prepared baking sheets.

5

Top with a spoonful of the beef filling, followed by a handful of shredded cheese.

6

Top with six more crusts and gently press around the edges. Use a fork to crimp and seal; make a few small incisions in the top to allow steam to escape. Brush with some of the beaten egg. Repeat with remaining crusts and fillings.

7

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately or let cool and freeze for longer storage.
