      This was a tasty treat. I made them for dinner and we all enjoyed them. The only alterations made to the recipe: I used puff pastry sheets > rolled out thinner, regular salsa, added a few dashed of Worcestershire and Frank's RedHot Original sauce and some cilantro. I brushed the the tops of the empanadas with an egg wash before baking. YUM! It'a a keeper & thanks for posting Keen5.

      I made Simple Tex-Mex Rice to go with these delicious Empanadas. I made some with beef and some with chicken. I added green olives in with the mix. Made them taste great! Excellent both ways. I served with salsa and sour cream on top. Great recipe!

      I love the idea of baking instead of frying. Much healthier. I don't like to fry if I can bake instead... Again gret recipe. I will make it again. sandy
