This is a new recipe I saw on tv, and adapted it to suit my tastes and that of my husband. The original recipe was done with turkey.

How to Make Chicken and black bean empanadas

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • 2In a large bowl combine chicken, both cheeses, salsa, diced tomatoes, and cumin. Mix well to combine.
  • 3Unroll pie crusts onto a flat surface, and using a 4 inch cutter cut out 6 circles.
  • 4Divide chicken mixture into equal portions and place each portion on top of the pie crusts. Fold crusts over and pinch the edges together to seal. Using a fork crimp the edges of the pinched crusts to make hash marks to make sure they are sealed.
  • 5Put empanadas on a baking sheet, and using a knife make a couple small slits in the top of them to allow steam to escape while they cook.
  • 6(if desired) Brush with egg wash and place into preheated oven, baking for 15 minutes or until crust is a golden brown. May be served with sour cream or salsa.
