The instruction how to make Cheats chicken enchilada empanadas recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add beans, chicken and cumin. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until well combined and aromatic. Add the taco sauce and coriander. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Use an 11cm round pastry cutter to cut 24 discs from the pastry dough. Lightly brush edge of discs with egg yolk. Place 1 tablespoonful of the filling on 1 half of each pastry disc. Top with the cheese. Fold pastry in half to enclose the filling. Use a fork to press down edges to seal. Transfer to prepared tray.
  4. Lightly brush the tops of the empanadas with egg yolk. Use the tip of a knife to pierce the top of each empanada a few times (this helps steam escape). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool slightly.
  5. Top with sour cream, avocado, chilli and extra coriander. Season and serve.
