How to Make EASY EMPANADAS (MEAT POCKETS)
1In non-stick skillet, heat oil and then cook the sausage and potatoes about 5 minutes. With potato masher, smash potato cubes so that there are no large pieces.
2Add onion and zucchini, then cook about 8 more minutes. Add spices and cook an additional few minutes. Stir in olives. Remove from heat.
3Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Open rolls and separate into the 8 triangles. Put a large spoonful on filling on half of each triangle and fold over. Use a fork to crimp the edges shut.
4You will have 8 good sized triangles. Grate some black pepper on the top of each before baking. Bake on cookie sheet about 12 minutes. Serve with salsa, guacamole, or sour cream.
