    mailbelle's Note:

    DH and I watched Paula Deen make these today and he's anxious for me to try them now! These were served at Paula's surprise 60th birthday party. Using a rotisserie chicken from the deli and refrigerated pie crust for the dough are great shortcuts.

      I made these for dinner the other night. The filling made enough for at least 20 empanadas. I followed the recipe exactly, so I am not sure why I had so much. I even filled the pastries with two tablespoons of filling. I did feel that the filling was lacking in spice a bit - maybe needed more salt and something else. I also used the Goya brand empanada wrappers you can buy in the frozen section. I also baked them at 350 for 20 minutes rather than frying because one of my daughter's has a peanut allergy. My husband and I really liked them, but the girls weren't thrilled.

      Tasty! I used only 2 cups chicken, 2 ts cumin and added some jalapeno brine from the jar.
