      I made these as is and they were really good, however, I doubled the recipe and had some filling left over. I used the filling as a base for a pot of chili - I only added an industrial size can of crushed tomatoes and 2 cans of beans and some chili powder and I swear it's the best chili we've ever eaten.

      I make these every year for a Mardi Gras party, only I make about 8 dozen at a time. One of my favorite shortcuts for this is to use refrigerated pie crusts. I then place the pies on cookies sheets in the freezer and flash freeze them so that i can bake them at a later date. Oh...that's something else that I do differently....I bake them. I never have any leftovers from the parties either.
