VeganMoFo and Mini Mexican "Pantry" Pies

Even though I have burgers in the fridge, I wanted to make something a little spicier. I used the same recipe for masa that I used to make tamales a couple of weeks ago, spread it into ramekins, topped with a mixture of TVP & taco seasoning and baked in a water bath at 350 for 45 minutes. For the larger ones, I put an extra layer of masa on top as well. Now I can bring these tasty little "pies" with me to work, pop 'em in the microwave and have a yummy, satisfying lunch.

Ready to go into the oven:

Topped with sour creem, ground chipotles and chopped jalapenos:

Edited to add my food for the day: Breakfast was coffee with silk soy vanilla creamer. Lunch was a very dry, cold, veggie burger (no vegenaise and I can't buy any more until after Thanksgiving!) on two pieces of wheat bread (no buns either!) and a bag of Have'a Chips. Dinner was 2 glasses of Soy Nog and two of these little pies.

I'm inspired by your 'pantry' posts, because I'm pretty much trying to eat out of the pantry these days, too.
