I added recaito amd sofrito......makes it yummier!!! My puerto rican husband loves them!!! I used the frozen goya disc too!!!
thanks , this is awesome! i am 13 and tried this recipe and impressed my whole family! thanks again! :)
Changed things a bit. I used frozen empanadas. I whole onion,pepper and no salt and 1 pkg of goya picante seasoning and 1 pkg goya con azafran. We like things very spicy. It was very good. I just had empanadas at a party and wanted them more seasoned. I also fried them on top of the stove. Med until crispy.
This is a very common dish referred to by puerto ricans as pastellios. I made my own filling, but I used the dough recipe. I was quick and easy. I downsized the recipe and the only thing I changed, is added more salt. Its a very authentic recipe. Thanks for the recipe.
I made these according to your recipe. There was "something" missing. It was golden raisins. When we lived in P.R. there were always golden raisins in them. After adding the raisins to the left-over meat, it made it much better but still not authentic enough.
The dough was perfect meat a little dry so I added a little moe tomato paste and adobo and recaito... was so good. Thanks.
Great recipe; reminded me of Puerto Rico. I used discos and rotisserie chicken. One day, I'll get the nerve up to try and bake them!
This did not turn out for me:( I'm sure the recipe is perfect and it was my fault I got the results I did. The dough was great, but it kept tearing. I got one good empanada out of the bunch. The rest I turned into sope type shells and added the filling on top. I was also disappointed when after I finished cooking I realized I forgot the bell pepper. I don't think I will try this recipe again, it was awfully time consuming. I will continue to purchase my beef patties from the Jamaican restaurant in Chicago.
1st time i ever made these next time ill cut down the garlic a little but other than that great loved it i didnt make my own dough i bought the disco disc which worked out great thanks for all your help!!!
