I love making beef empanadillas/empanadas for my family and I thought it would be awesome to share this recipe with you as well. I have been making these for years and love it! I hope you do too. Below I have the list of ingredients you will need to make a batch for yourself. I also included the video for you as well!
INGREDIENTS: (Serving 20 Empanadillas)
1 lb of Ground Beef (or Chicken, Pork)
1 packet of Sazon
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1.5 tsp of Adobo
1 8oz. Can of Salsa
1 tbsp of Sofrito
1 tbsp of Recado
1 medium Potato cubed
Oil enough for frying
2 packages of Empanada Disc (found in the hispanic section of your supermarket) *make sure to defrost your discs prior to cooking.
On a separate pot boil a medium potato until fork tender, drain and set aside. On a medium pan cook your beef on medium heat until brown then drain. Add all the ingredients together.
Next take your meat and potato filling and fill the center of the discs. Pinch the ends to secure the discs and prevent them from opening with a fork. Fry in pan for about 3 minutes (each side) on medium heat or until golden brown.
