Empanada Recipes

posted by Laura - 

As with all the recipes I put out there, I will warn you that I don't measure in the kitchen!  I mix and taste, cook and taste and just wing it. I make a couple versions because the kids aren't into the spice as much as the adults.  So here are two recipes for you!


MOROCCAN EMPANADAS

Baby carrots chopped

Vidalia Onion chopped

Ground beef/chuck

Cream Cheese

Apricot Preserves

Cayenne pepper

Cumin

Salt/Pepper

Paprika

Goya Empanada dough (freezer section at Market Basket)

Eggs (for egg wash)

SAUCE

Mix some Sriracha and apricot preserves - you can make sweeter or spicier by adding more or less of each ingrediant. 


Cook up the beef with onions and then add carrots (I don't cook the carrots until they are soft because they add a crunch to the bite).  Mix in some cream cheese (maybe 1/4 of a bar), your seasonings (depending how spicy you like it add more cayenne), and add in some of the apricot preserves.  Again just keep tasting the mixure until you like the spice/sweet taste.  Spoon a pile of the mixture in the center of the dough and fold over and close with a fork.  In a bowl, combine water and egg and brush on top of empanadas before baking.  (400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown).  Serve with the sriracha/apricot preserves sauce.  Enjoy!
