  • Makes 10 empanadas
  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces lean ground pork
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, chopped (optional)
  • 1 Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon Cube(s)
  • 1 Knorr® Garlic MiniCube(s), crumbled
  • 1 package (12 to 14 oz.) frozen empanada dough , thawed
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

Directions

  1. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and brown pork with onion, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes; drain, if desired. Reduce heat, then stir in remaining ingredients except dough and egg. Cook, stirring frequently, until liquid is almost absorbed, about 5 minutes. Refrigerate mixture until cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Roll dough into 10 (5-in.) circles on lightly floured surface. Spoon 2 tablespoons pork mixture into centers. Fold each in half, pressing out air bubbles. Moisten edges with water and seal tightly with a fork.
  3. Arrange on baking sheet, then brush with slightly beaten egg. Bake 10 minutes or until golden.

*To fry empanadas, heat oil to 350°F in a deep medium skillet. Cook empanadas, a few at a time, about 7 minutes or until golden brown, turning once; drain on paper towels. Serve with salsa.
