Paleo MINI SAMOSAS

January 11, 2017 by EPIC Wolf Pack posted on Recipes

Whether you’re celebrating a late holiday season, celebrating the New Year, or getting together just because with family and friends, there’s always, always, always a reason to have awesome treat recipes in your back pocket.  The key to a good gathering, aside from the company, is a killer spread with a lot of variety. These mini samosas with fresh chimichurri sauce are the bee’s knees. Super easy to make, something different, and paleo friendly! What’s not to love about these little bites?

We used the Chicken Sesame BBQ Bites, but if you’re feelin’ a little spicy use the Beef Cranberry Sriracha Bites. And the best part about all of this? You’ll have extra filling and chimichurri sauce left over for an awesome breakfast hash with a fried egg the next morning. Enjoy!
