Leftover chicken chili was the inspiration for these yummy empanadas.


2 packs Goya frozen turnover cough  (these are my faves because there’s plastic sheets separating them.  No more dough sheets sticking together!

4- 6 cups leftover chili

I egg for egg wash

Water to deal seams

I finally got myself an empanada press.  Now making empanadas is so much easier!


Lay the dough on the press and top with filling.


Run your finger dipped in water along the dough edge and fold over filling pressing gently so it will deal well.

Brush with beaten egg and bake at 37tF for 20 minutes.

So many variations of fillings!!  Sloppy joe.  Ground meat in gravy.  Sausage and cheese.  Barbecue.
