Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Make Ahead
Assemble empanadas as directed; place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate up to 24 hours, then bake as directed. To freeze, layer unbaked empanadas between sheets of waxed or parchment paper in airtight container. Freeze up to 2 weeks. Thaw completely in refrigerator before baking as directed.
Tip 2
Mindful Eating
Set aside family time to connect and enjoy good food and good company while being mindful of portions.
Tip 3
Fun Idea
Impress your guest by shaping empanadas differently. Or place a stencil over unbaked empanadas, brush beaten egg around stencil, then remove stencil and bake as directed.
Tip 4
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast in the oven, spread nuts onto bottom of shallow pan. Bake in 350°F oven 10 to 15 min. or until nuts are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or to toast on the stovetop, place nuts in skillet; cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently.
