I used regular mayonnaise with about two tablespoons of hot and spicy mayonnaise added to make 1/3 cup. I also cooked the chicken breasts in chicken broth, because I had some broth over from another recipe. Also used cilantro paste as recommended from another reviewer, it worked out great. I think I'll make the circles larger next time when ****** these, because two tablespoons didn't really fit. Could have been because my chicken wasn't shredded enough. Made chicken soup with the strained cooking broth by adding some chopped carrots, celery and small pasta. Add one chicken bullion cube to pop the flavor and some parsley flakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very yummy! Very yummy! I love the simplicity of this recipe, mainly for its use of store-bought pie crust. A tube of organic cilantro made it even quicker to make. I turned over a wide-rimmed cup to cut out my circles. They were about 3 1/2" in diameter. I cut the recipe in half, since I wanted to use just one crust for our lunch. 1 Tbsp was plenty for the 7 circles I cut out. So 1/4 of the filling recipe made 7 empanadas for me. I'll make the other 7 soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't find chipotle mayo, so I added about a teaspoon of taco seasoning to plain mayo. I couldn't find chipotle mayo, so I added about a teaspoon of taco seasoning to plain mayo. I didn't put any spices on the outside. 3 out of 4 of my kids thought this was the best dinner ever! (4th is a picky 3 year old) Takes a bit of time to make, but totally worth it. This will definitely go into my menu rotation.
