Pastelitos (Pastry Hack)

This is the situation, craving a snack, not energy or time to make pastry, no time to buy already-made-dough... Do you have tortilla wraps... Then that's all you need, well that, and a few other ingredients...

This recipe makes 10 snack size pastries.


5 tortilla wraps

1 tablespoon of AP flour

2 tablespoons of water

Filling: ham & cheese, leftover (anything you like)

Oil to fry


  1. Grab the tortilla wraps, and with the help of a small circular plate cut out two round piece. The rest of the tortilla pieces can be stored and saved to have wacky nacho shapes (so there is no waste).

  2. In a small bowl add the flour and the water and whisk it to make a glue-type mixture.

  3. Fill the rounds living some empty spaces on the edges with the help of a spoon (or a kitchen brush) at the glue to the edges and close the rounds into half-moon shapes.

  4. With the help of a fork, you can press the edges to sealed them.

  5. Fry until golden brown.
