Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 60 minutes



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned.

  3. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the onion is softened.

  4. Stir in the cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for another minute to allow the flavors to meld together.

  5. Remove the skillet from heat and let the meat mixture cool slightly.

  6. Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Use a round cutter to cut out circles from the pastry sheets.

  7. Place a spoonful of the meat mixture onto each pastry circle, leaving a small border around the edges.

  8. Fold the pastry over to enclose the filling and seal the edges with a fork.

  9. Place the pastelillos onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  10. Brush the tops of the pastelillos with the beaten egg wash.

  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastelillos are golden brown and crisp.

  12. Serve warm and enjoy!
