What You Need

2
Tbsp.  KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
1
pkg.   (16 oz.) frozen ground turkey, thawed
1
 onion, chopped
1
 carrot, peeled, finely chopped
2
cloves  garlic, minced
1
can   (15 oz.) great Northern beans, drained, rinsed
1
cup  KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4
cup   finely chopped cilantro
1/2
tsp.  ground red pepper
1
pkg.  (15 oz.) ready-to-use refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)

Make It

HEAT dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add turkey, onions, carrots and garlic; cook 5 to 7 min. or until turkey is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in beans, cheese, cilantro and pepper; set aside.

PREHEAT oven to 400ºF. Unroll 1 of the pie crusts on large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spread half of the turkey mixture onto half of the crust to within 1 inch of edges. Fold crust in half to enclose filling. Fold over 1/2-inch-wide rim around pastry to seal all edges. Repeat with remaining pie crust and filling. Cut several slits in top of each to permit steam to escape.

BAKE 25 min. or until golden brown. Cut each empanada into four wedges to serve.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Note

Variation
Substitute 2 chopped serrano chiles for the ground red pepper.
