Easy Beef Empanandas
- If your cooked ground beef is not already taco-seasoned, simmer it with the taco seasoning and water for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. If it is already seasoned, skip this step.In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the pie crusts. One at a time, roll the pie crusts out into 18 individual circles approximately 8 in diameter. Fill each crust with 1/3 cup of the filling. Fold crust over and seal, cutting off any extra dough if necessary. Bake at 375°F for approximately 25 minutes, or until crust is light brown and crispy. Serve with queso dip or salsa.
To freeze, lay empanadas on a cookie sheet and freeze individually. When frozen, bag in freezer bags and label with the following information: “Thaw. Bake at 375°F approximately 25 minutes, or until crust is light brown and crispy. Serve with queso dip or salsa.”
