1 . Heat oven to 400°F. On floured surface and using floured rolling pin, roll each pastry or pie crust to 12-inch round. Cut 6 (4-inch) rounds from each crust. Firmly press rounds in bottoms and up sides of 12 ungreased regular-size muffin cups. In small bowl, beat egg white and cumin with whisk until frothy. Generously brush mixture over insides of each pastry-lined cup.

2 . In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 minutes. Add onion. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked and onion is tender; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix, salsa and water. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Spoon hot beef mixture evenly into muffin cups.

3 . Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until crust edges are golden brown. Sprinkle tops of pies with cheese. Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with toppings of choice.
