    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.

    This turned out so good! My 6 yr old even at one all by herself! She is a picky one too.
