well happy Monday folks! It’s the first day back for most of y’all from the holiday rush and for others it’s the first full week in a while. Bummer!
Friday night I wasn’t really in a cooking mood but didn’t want a sandwich so I threw together this quick and simple meal with a leftover pie crust I had from the holidays.
quick beef empanadas:
1 refrigerated pie crust
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup Queso dip
Sour cream, optional
Preheat oven to 425 and line cookie sheet with silpat mat or parchment paper.
Brown ground beef in a skillet or small sauce pan. Drain fat off.
Return to low heat and mix in Queso dip thoroughly.
Roll out pie crust into four pie large slices. (through the middle up/down & through middle left/right)
Spoon even amount of mixture into pie crust. Fold the triangle wedge from one corner longways to the other side. This will create you folded empanadas.
With a fork, wet with water, then seal open edges of crust with fork.
Repeat for all four pie slices.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Crust will be golden brown around the edges.
Serve with sour cream, salsa or any other favorite side.
