Cook ground beef; drain. Simmer together filling ingredients. Combine flour, cornmeal and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water, alittle at a time, until dough froms a ball. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Divide into two balls; roll half on a floured surface to a 16-inch circle. Cut into four 7 1/2 in. rounds. Put filling on each round. Brush with combined egg and water. Fold to form half circles; crimp edges to seal. Repeat with other dough and filling.
Bake on greased baking sheet 25-30 minutes at 400 F until lightly browned. Serve with additional taco sauce, if desired.
