Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made these today and they were tasty. I made these today and they were tasty. I followed the recipe but the dough only made enough for 9 turnovers. I think you could roll the dough thinner than 1/8" and it would be fine. I would have liked thinner crust. My husband thought they were great. I used the leftover filling to make nachos and liked that better than the turnovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were great! These were great! Easy dough and easy ingredients made a great dinner. I served with guacamole and sour cream as dips and a dinner salad. Would definitely make again.
