These taco hand pies are a fun twist on traditional tacos, with a flaky pastry crust filled with seasoned ground beef, beans, cheese, and all your favorite taco toppings. They are perfect for a quick and tasty meal or snack on the go.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 sheets refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Taco toppings of your choice (salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a skillet, cook the ground beef and onion over medium heat until the beef is browned and the onion is soft. Add the taco seasoning and black beans, stirring to combine.

  6. Place the hand pies on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with more beaten egg.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the hand pies are golden brown and crispy.
