I have never tried to make these but lately I had been thinking about it quite a bit. Had I known they were so easy I would have made them long ago. As usual I looked through about a dozen or so recipes and took what I liked from them all to come up with my version. I filled my first batch with left over brisket, poblanos and cheddar cheese. They came out really good. The dough was better than I thought it would be. The recipe is mainly for the dough and frying. You can fill these with almost anything.
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk or whole milk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 stick of butter
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, vinegar and buttermilk. Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix together flour and salt. Cut the butter into the flour with 2 forks or a pastry knife. Just like making biscuits.
Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the egg mixture. Using your hands, mix the dry into the wet until it forms a dough. It should come together pretty fast. If is seems a little dry add in more buttermilk/milk about a teaspoon at a time until it comes together. Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and knead it 5 or 6 times. Don't overwork it. Wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough until its an 1/8th of an inch thick. Using a cutter or a bowl, cut out 6 inch rounds from the dough. Store them under a damp towel until you are ready to fill.
Place about 1/3 of a cup of filling into the center of the dough. Fold over like a taco, gently stretching the dough to cover the filling. Press the edge down to seal it then fold the edge over to ensure nothing leaks out while frying. Using a fork press down along the edges to form small ridges along the edge.
