  • Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef, onion and salt and cook until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Reduce the heat to medium. Stir the soup in the skillet and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the queso fresco.

  • Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture in the center of each dough circle. Brush the edges of the dough circles with water. Fold the dough in half over the filling. Crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Brush the empanadas with the egg. Place the empanadas onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the empanadas are golden brown.

Tips

Serving Suggestion: Delicious served with salsa, guacamole or sour cream for dipping.

I couldn t find the soup so I used a can of La Costena black beans and fresh cilantro. I added the cumin and a seeded jalapeño to the beef when it was browning. Everything else was basically the same. It did need salt since I wasn t using a condensed soup. I enjoyed them. They filled the craving. Next time I might add some crushed tomato. I served with sour cream sliced avocado and Herdez roasted salsa verde. Read More

I added this to ground beef after draining fat. Also I added cilantro and corn. Read More
