How to Cook Mexican Food Empenadas

Ingredients:

  • empanada dough (homemade or store bought)
  • chicken, beef, or pork (cooked and shredded)
  • onions (chopped)
  • tomatoes (chopped)
  • black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • cilantro (finely chopped)
  • chili peppers (optional – finely chopped)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

empanada filling: empanadas are made with any kind of filling. The most common fillings include meat, beans, cheese, potatoes etc... You can also add spices such as cumin powder or chili peppers if desired! Empanadas may be served hot or cold depending on your preference.

- empanada dough: empanadas are made with any kind of dough, but the best empanadas use a homemade empanda dough recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation (it's not easy!). The most common types include corn flour tortillas or wheat flour tortillas which can be bought at most supermarkets.

- empanada frying: empanadas can be fried or baked. Fried empanadas are usually more crispy, while baked empanadas have a softer texture.

Empanada Recipe Instructions:

To make the empanada dough, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well until a dough forms.

For empanada filling, heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat and sauté onions until translucent (about two minutes). Add tomatoes and cook for eight to ten more minutes or until soft then add cilantro at the end of cooking time just before removing from heat source. For empanadas with meat, add cooked and shredded chicken, beef, or pork to the pan with onions and tomatoes.

Set aside empanada dough on a floured surface and roll out until it is about ¼ inch thick. Cut out circles using a biscuit cutter or drinking glass then place a spoonful of empanada filling in the center of each circle.

Dip your fingers in a little water and wet the edges of each dough circle then fold over to form a half-moon shape and press down on the edges with a fork to seal well. You can also use an empanada mold which is specifically designed for this task!

If frying empanadas, heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook empanadas until golden brown on both sides. If baking empanadas, preheat oven to 375 degrees F before placing empanadas on a baking sheet and bake for fifteen minutes or until golden brown in color.

And there you have it! Your very own empanada recipe that is sure to impress your friends and family. Enjoy!
