Belizean Flaky Meat Pies


Meat pies are always a special treat. It's made with ground beef and and hot peppers. The pie dough is always flaky and you have the choice of adding healthy vegetables like spinach or any other fiber to make it a little bit more healthy.

Here's a little tip for you so that you won't have to strain your flour any more. Put less water in the flour so that you end up with a paste. This will incorporate all the flour into the water. After you have a nice thick paste then add water to thin and there will be no chunks to strain out. Too much water at the first will cause the surface tension on the water to repel the flour and that's where the lumps come from. Use just a tiny bit of water and your problem is solved.
