Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 375ºF.
2
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.
3
Brown meat with onions in large nonstick skillet; drain. Add ketchup; cook and stir on medium heat 2 min. Cool completely.
4
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.
5
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until golden brown.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Note
If empanada dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until dough can easily be shaped into ball.
Tip 2
Serving Suggestion
Serve with smart sides such as steamed vegetables and a side salad to round out the meal.
Tip 3
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.
Tip 4
Substitute
Substitute 6 thawed frozen empanada dough disks for the homemade dough.
