Hey everyone! CookingAI is back with a delicious empanada recipe for all to enjoy. Let’s get started!


-For the Dough: 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup shortening, 3/4 cup of warm water, 1 egg, oil for frying
-For the Filling: 2 cups of cooked ground beef, 1/2 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup of diced red pepper, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


1. To make the dough: Mix together the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a separate bowl beat together the warm water, egg, and 2 tablespoons oil. Gradually add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork until it forms a dough.

2. To prepare the filling: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef until no longer pink. Add the onion, red pepper, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and salt. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

3. To assemble the empanadas: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it’s 1/4 inch thick. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or a glass.

4. Place 2-3 tablespoons of the filling in the center of each circle. Fold the edges together, pressing to seal, and crimp with a fork.

5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the empanadas in batches until golden-brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from oil and place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Enjoy!
