Easy vegetarian empanadas.
Alternatively, you can deep fry the empanadas in oil that's reached 180 degrees C. You can also make them into full circles rather than half circles, making 16 larger empanadas.
this was too blah. my mother in law taught me how to make these and you can get creative. anything can go in them, beef,cheese, fruit I have done taco flavored beef and yellow rice, beef and mashed patatoes, my family always want cheese in them. also you can find premade shells (goya) in the frozen section for about 1.50 for 10 shells also i fry mine for low fat you can bake too. - 11 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was extremely easy and really tasty. The filling was just a little bland for my taste, so I added jalapenos and a little more seasoning. I served the empanadas to my family with a side of beans, salsa, and Mexican cheese--it was a huge success and everyone's fighting over the leftovers! - 20 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I agree that this recipe was very bland. I, too, served it with homemade salsa. I took these to a party along with chicken empanadas; the only who ate them was the vegetarian. They definitely need cheese ... maybe, jalepano cheese. - 19 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
