Notes

 This Spanish Beef Empanadas recipe is one of my favorites to make and to eat!  I could truly live off of Empanadas and french fries every day.  I just can’t get enough.  I have finally learned how to make these babies and they are incredibly delicious.  They are really easy to turn into beef & cheese empanadas by just adding some shredded cheeses to the mixture.
We also like to use chicken instead of beef to switch it up. Grab a can of shredded chicken or make your own, and you are good to go!
This is one of the easiest mixtures I’ve ever seen so, these don’t take all day, but can be thrown together for dinner in 20 minutes.
Below, I have step by step instructions on how to make these.  Serve them with some Spanish rice and a salad on the side, and you have the perfect meal.
This is one of my family’s favorite meals so, I know yours will like it as well!
I use Goya® products for everything in this recipe so, that the mixture tastes authentic, but you could really grab whatever is on sale in your local grocery store. Enjoy!
 
These are great finger foods, appetizers, or a main dish.
