Ground Beef Empanadas

Ground Beef Empanadas

  • 1 tbs. Ahuacatlan Natural (plus additional to fry)
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 2 tbs. Red Hot Sauce
  • ½ cup Onion, chopped
  • ½ cup Scallions
  • 2 tsp. Garlic, minced
  • ½ tbs. Ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Empanada Dough Disks (packaged)

In a sautee pan, add 1 tbs. Ahuacatlan Natural, and sautee the ground beef until fully cooked, about 20 minutes

Add the red hot sauce, onion, scallions, garlic, ginger, black pepper, and 1 tbs. Ahuacatlan Natural and simmer until the ingredients come together.

Add a spoonful of the beef filling to each empanada disk and seal the edge with egg wash.

In a frying pan, add a good amount of Ahuacatlan Oil to fry the empanadas. Fry until golden brown (or about 10 minutes), and pat dry with a paper towel to remove the excess.
