Instructions

  2. Preheat oven to 375F, spray a baking sheet with some non stick cooking spray.
  3. Cut your flatout wraps in half using a pizza cutter.
  4. In a small bowl mix your flour and water together to form a thick paste, add more water if too thick.
  5. As show in picture place a small amount of flour paste at the top of your half wrap, but only half way across. Fold over to form a cone shape and the flour paste will seal them.
  6. Add in a few spoonfuls of taco beef mixture, about ¼ cup just don't overfill, you need room to seal them.
  7. Place some more flour paste on the top piece of your wrap and seal closed, forming a triangle shape. Repeat with all 12 pieces.
  8. Place on baking sheet and spray pockets with some cooking spray just on the one side.
