These aren’t traditional Empanadas, but I couldn’t think of what else to call them. They are kind of a mix of Empanadas, Egg Rolls and Samosas. I used the leftovers from my Picadillo dish for the filling in my Empanadas and it turned out tasty!
Picadillo recipe for filling
Egg Roll wrappers
1 egg, beaten
In a large frying pan over med-high, heat about ½” of oil. Test the readiness by dropping a little piece of food, if it sizzles, the oil is ready for frying.
Prepare empanadas by filling half of one egg roll wrapper and leaving ½” of space around the edge. With your finger, rub a little egg around the edges then press together to make a triangle. Fry each side for about 3-4 minutes, until crispy and brown. If it’s cooking too fast and burning, turn down the heat. Place on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
Serve with a green or chopped vegetable salad.
