In Hemet, California, Margaret Wilson serves these stuffed pockets with a creamy dipping sauce. "They're a great grab-and-go lunch or even a hearty late-night snack," she writes. Using tubes of refrigerated dough keeps the preparation quick.

"These were great and very easy to make! We had them for dinner with the spanish rice that was featured next to the recipe. My youngest daughter doesn't like beans so I used two cans of meatless chili. The dipping sauce was very tasty but it was a little too chunky for dipping. We will definitely make this again!!"
