    Excellent and easy. FYI, leave out the sofrito and adobo and put in finely diced red and green peppers. Some canned drained mushrooms and a slice of provolone and you got a Philly Cheesesteak empanada. In Mexico you’ll find all sorts of empanadas. Fruit filled,vegetable filled and pork, chicken and beef as well. Experiment and enjoy this wonderful street food!

    This recipe is very good. Flavor is on point. A couple of tips: You will need more than one package of empanada discs for 2lbs of meat. Also, I had to up the oven temp to 400 to get them to brown. I will definitely make it again.
