Wild West Wellingtons Recipe

This spicy spin-off of traditional beef Wellington is so attractive that it's perfect for a special occasion. If you like your food extra spicy, choose a hot salsa rather than mild or medium. —Jenni Dise, Phoenix, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup canned chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons beaten egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon water
  • Salsa, optional


  • 1. Sprinkle steaks with salt, cumin and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown steaks on both sides; remove and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and chilies; set aside.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Cut into two 12x8-in. rectangles. Place a steak on one side of each rectangle; top with cream cheese mixture. Fold pastry over meat; seal seams. Place seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • 3. Combine egg and water; brush over pastry. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with salsa if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

"I made this for my father in law on Father's Day a couple years ago. It was so simple to prepare, was very elegant in appearance, and tasted fantastic. He absolutely loved it. I can't wait for another occasion to make this!"
