An empanada (Spanish pronunciation:  is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried in many countries of The Americas and in Spain. The name comes from the Spanish verb empanar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread.

Empanadas are made by folding dough over a stuffing, which may consist of meat, cheese, corn, or other ingredients.

Easy Recipe from Pillsbury recipes
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped Save $
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls Save $
1 egg white, beaten
1 egg yolk, beaten
  • Into 10-inch skillet, place ground beef, onion, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until beef is browned; drain. Stir in cumin, chili powder and tomato sauce. Reduce heat to low; cook 5 minutes longer.
    Heat oven to 400°F. Place silicone baking mat on cookie sheet with sides.
    On baking mat, unroll dough into 1 large rectangle; press perforations and edges to seal. Using 4-inch round cutter, cut out 8 dough rounds.
    To make each empanada, place about 2 tablespoons beef mixture onto center of each dough round. Using pastry brush (or fingers), gently brush edge of each round with beaten egg white. Fold dough round in half to cover filling; press edge together to seal. (To make decorative edge, fold dough over itself so that it forms a rope look.) Lightly brush tops of empanadas with beaten egg yolk.
    Bake 10 to 12 minute or until golden brown. Serve warm.
