Prepare the ingredients before making Empanadas in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Empanadas for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Empanadas

  • 2 cup masa
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 lb picadillo (Puerto Rican meat filling, or filling of choice)
  • shredded sharp cheddar (optional)
  • vegetable oil

How to Make Empanadas

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Empanadas in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Peel the potatoes and boil them whole until fork tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • Step 2
  • If you don't know what picadillo is you can find recipes all over the net for it. It's a Puerto Rican meat mixture and is amazing. Anyways, mix the water and masa together well. If it's too dry add a little more water if it's too wet add a little more masa. You don't want the dough to be sticky or crumbly.
  • Step 3
  • Dice the potatoes up then add it to the picadillo mixture.
  • Step 4
  • Grab about a golf ball sized piece of the masa, roll it into a ball then place on a piece of parchment paper, place another piece of parchment paper on top. Roll the dough out to about the thickness of a corn tortilla, maintaining a round shape. This process would be much faster with a tortilla press, however I do not own one so this is my method.
  • Step 5
  • Place about a 1/4 cup of the filling onto one half of the dough, fold the other half over and pinch seams together or use a fork. I personally don't do either, but it's hard to explain how I do it,it almost looks like it's twisting around the edge.
  • Step 6
  • In a skillet of oil fry the empanada over medium high heat until golden on each side. Serve with your favorite meat and rice and enjoy!
