Taco Empanadas

(Mexican Hand Pies)

Deliciously flaky, flavorful, and spicy, Taco Empanadas are so delicious, and perfect for summer picnics and gatherings.

Made with homemade empanada dough, ground beef, Mexican spices, and cheese, these Mexican hand pies are the best!


Preheat the oven to 350° and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Make the meat filling by cooking the beef and spices in a skillet until no longer pink.

Roll out the dough to roughly 1/8th inch thickness. Next, use a small bowl to cut the dough into discs by turning the bowl upside down and pressing down to cut out a large circle.

Add a teaspoon of cheese on top of the beef filling. Dip your finger in water and run it along the edge of the circle to dampen the dough.

Use a pastry brush and brush the pies with the beaten egg wash. Use a fork and seal the empanada edges.
