  1. Sift flour into a bowl. Add butter, egg, water, and vinegar. Combine, mashing with your hands, until dough is well blended and sticks together.
  2. Put meatloaf in a bowl and add chili powder, crushed bay leaves, cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Mash together until well mixed.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add meatloaf and cook until hot and browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  5. Flour a work surface and roll out dough. Cut out 10 circles.
  6. Add an equal amount of meatloaf filling to each circle. Fold dough over and use a fork to enclose and seal empanadas. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Whisk egg yolks in a bowl and brush over empanadas.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Try using a cheese grater on the garlic; it is way faster than mincing. Also, the dough may rip, so be gentle.
