Hello, I knew someone who was a volunteer at my job,Who made Empanadas and I loved them so much I went home and made them myself. Unfortunately I had sense lost the recipe. I asked around. I looked on the net and after taking in the suggestions on the recipe, this is what I came up with.. They turned well excepted. My recipe is not precise I estimated the seasonings. Feel free to adjust it to your liking.

How To Make marie's empanada filling

  • 1
    Dice Onions
  • 2
    Mince or Crush Garlic Cloves
  • 3
    Add about 2 Tables spoons of Olive oil to your pan. Let it heat up and place Diced Onions and Garlic cloves in the pan for a few minutes to allow onion to sweat. Remove the onion and garlic from the pan to a bowl for later.
  • 4
    In A 2 quart pan, cook hamburger. (While cooking Hamburger continue your prep work.) Once cooked drain off the fat.
  • 5
    Dice Bell peppers and cube potatoes.
  • 6
    Add Garlic, Onion, peppers, potatoes and rice to the pot of cooked hamburger.
  • 7
    And Seasoning, Cover with water until everything is covered. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat,cover and let it simmer until the liquid absorbs and the potato and rice are cooked. Let it set to cool off. I put mine in 2 bowls and placed them in the fridge. I found they work better when the mixture is cooled off enough to work with. The flavors marinade.

    I filled my empananda shells and place 2 whole olives in each one. You can cut them in half, I did the last time I cooked them. But the whole olive works wonders. You can deep fry them for a couple of minutes in a deep fryer or on the stove until they are as brown as you like. They can be baked But I have never done it.
