Mexican Veg Samosa

Make any night a fiesta with this great appetizer and entertain in true Mexican style. The beans and cheeses blend together in a spicy seasoning to make these delicious triangles. The taste is very close to enchiladas but we just like to call them samosas for its look. Definitely  give this one a try !

Prep Time:30 mins

Flour tortillas: 3 (cut in half)
Onions (chopped): 1/2 cup
Jalapenos (chopped): 1-2 tablespoons
Red & Green peppers (chopped): 1/4 cup
Corn: 4 tablespoons
Black beans: 1/3 cup
Taco seasoning: 1 1/2 tablespoons
Picante sauce/Regular marinara sauce: 1/3 cup
Mozzarella cheese+Mexican cheese blend: 1/2 cup
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil to brush

Sticky paste: Mix 1 table spoon of flour with little water to make a smooth paste.
* We have made a vegetarian version, you could even add beef/shredded chicken to this.

Heat oil in a deep pan. Saute the onions until golden pink. Add jalapenos, colored peppers and the corn niblets. Saute again. Add the black beans. Throw in the taco seasoning. Also add the marinara sauce and mix well. Turn off the heat and add all of the cheese.

Make sure the cheese doesn't fully melt.

Cut the tortilla into two halves. Make a cone and seal the edges with the sticky paste. Fill it with the stuffing  and close the end, slightly overlapping it.

Brush oil all over and let it bake in the oven at 375
° F until it looks toasty.

Serve warm.

  6. We make sambusa-like dishes in various ways--sometimes with ground lamb or beef and onions with rice, cumin, cardamom, etc., and sometimes with feta, onion, and spices. Never tried a Mexican spin with tortillas instead of egg roll skins or phyllo. We'll have to give this a try--it sounds delicious!
