Arroz con pollo, flan, and empanadas are food I grew up on being a Latina, just to name a few. While my mother taught me to make flour empanadas from scratch when I was a teen, sometimes you want to take the quick route. This is where the Goya discos para empanadas comes in! This is a product that allowed me to make something tasty within minutes while being able to savor flavors that took me all the way back home to Panama.
IN A HURRY? PIN FOR LATER
If you thought that making empanadas wasn’t for you, think again. Since the dough is ready, all you have to do is make the filling, fry and serve. 😉
I chose to use ground beef, but you can use shredded chicken, beef, or meat of choice. I seasoned the beef with… Adobo, you guessed it another favorite product from Goya. 🙂 Then added some peppers and onions for extra flavor, a pinch of salt and pepper.
After cooking the beef, I drained any extra grease and added beef on half of the disk, leaving enough space to fold it over. Once you add the beef and fold the dough in half, use a fork to seal the edge (that’s what those little marks are, fork marks). 🙂
Fry each empanada until golden brown, (I don’t recommend frying more than two at once). Once fried, I like to remove them and place them on paper towels, which absorbs the extra oil. Let them cool and serve warm, that’s it! You are now an empanada making machine. 😛
Let me know what you think once you try them. And remember to share or Pin this post for later!
