  • Combine first 6 ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in water until mixture forms ball. Place on lightly floured surface; knead 5 min. or until smooth and elastic. Divide dough into 12 balls, using about 2 Tbsp. for each; flatten each to 6-inch round.
  • Spoon about 1/3 cup shrimp mixture onto center of each round; moisten edge with water. Fold dough rounds in half to enclose filling; press lightly on tops to remove air pockets. Seal edges with fork.
  • Heat oil in medium deep skillet to 375°F. Add empanadas, in batches; cook 3 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet; drain well.

Serving Suggestion

For added color and texture, serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.

Make Ahead

Empanadas can be assembled ahead of time. Place in single layer on parchment paper-covered baking sheet; cover. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, cook as directed.

Variation

To bake empanadas instead of frying them in oil, heat oven to 375ºF. Place empanadas on parchment-covered baking sheet. Pierce in several places with fork or knife to allow steam to escape; brush with beaten egg. Bake 15 to 20 min. or until golden brown.

    We didn't like this. It needs some kind of sauce with it.
