Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Mix flour and baking powder in medium bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add 1/4 cup water, stirring until mixture forms ball. Knead dough on lightly floured surface 5 min. or until smooth and elastic. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate while preparing filling.
  • Brown meat with onions in large nonstick skillet; drain. Add ketchup; cook and stir on medium heat 2 min. Cool completely.
  • Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll out each piece on lightly floured surface to 7-inch round; place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Stir cheese into meat mixture; spoon about 1/3 cup onto half of each dough round. Beat egg and remaining water; brush onto edges of dough rounds. Fold in half to enclose filling. Press tops lightly to remove excess air; seal edges with fork. Brush tops with remaining egg.
  • Bake 18 to 20 min. or until golden brown.

Special Equipment Needed


If empanada dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until dough can easily be shaped into ball.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with smart sides such as steamed vegetables and a side salad to round out the meal.

Make Ahead

Empanadas can be assembled ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, uncovered, on prepared baking sheet as directed.


Substitute 6 thawed frozen empanada dough disks for the homemade dough.
