Mexican Pizza Pockets

Who would have though a can of baked beans could taste so great? These delicious parcels are perfect for an easy Sunday night dinner, quick ‘meatless Monday’ meal or a great addition to the lunchbox. They are full of tasty Mexican vegetables and gooey cheese, all wrapped up in a little parcel.

The inspiration of this recipe came from the classic tuckshop pizza pocket. For those not familiar, a pizza pocket is a soft white dough filled with cheesy pizza ingredients. although delicious, probably not very nutritious. However, these little Mexican parcels tick both these boxes, are super simple and a whole meal in a parcel, so great!

If you prefer regular cheese, go for it, I love using Barambah cheese slices! Also, if you would like to add more protein, shredded chicken or some tuna are both great additions.
