Once you’re comfortable making empanadas, you can (and by all means should) try a range of different filling ingredients and spices. To start off, stick with this classic recipe for a great batch of empanadas.
You’ll need two packages of frozen pie crusts (aka a total of four pie crusts), a pound of ground beef, diced yellow onion, diced red bell pepper, minced garlic, shredded Mexican cheese, an egg, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. To prepare this recipe, you’ll also need a skillet, lined baking sheets, a fork, a small bowl, a brush, and a spoon. In other words, nothing fancy!
