How I Make Empanadas

Empanadas are probably not the best choice when you are on a health kick, but like I always say you got to live life sometimes. I absolutely love empanadas and wanted to learn how to make them myself, now they might not look the best but they sure are good!

Preheat oven to 400


-Ground Beef (You can use any meat, or whatever you want to fill it with)

-Goya Discos Dough

-Goya Sofrito

– Pepper, salt, onion and garlic powder ( I prefer using fresh onion and garlic instead of powder)

– Cayenne Pepper and Ghost Pepper (If you want spice)

-2 Eggs


Cook the ground beef and then turn the heat down to low. Next add the seasonings, I usually just measure with my eyes (Top chef I know). After the meat is cooked and you add the seasonings it is time to add the Goya Sofrito, let it cook down before turning off the heat.

After the liquid has cooked down let the meat cool down before added it to the dough.  Mix two eggs into a bowl and place the dough on a paper plate. You want to make sure you get the eggs all around the edges to make sure it stays together. Next take about a tablespoon of meat and place it to one side.


Flip the other side over to close the empanada making sure it is sticking together. Then take a fork to the edges where the two sides meat and push it down to close it.  Place all of the empanadas on a pan with foil. Brush the top of the empanada with egg to make it more crispy, and put the fork through the middle so you do not get bubbles (You see what happens when you do not like mine lol)

Cook for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees or until the top is lightly brown.
