Cook: 20 Minutes

6 - 8 Servings

Create delicious chicken stuffed empanadas with an avocado lime sauce using our simple Pocket Pie Press. The perfect hand-held dinner idea or appetizer.

  • Ingredients
    • Empanadas:
    • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
    • 1 Tbsp oil
    • 1 lb. cooked chicken, diced
    • 1/4 cup sliced green onion, green & white parts
    • 1/2 cup black beans
    • 1/2 cup picante sauce
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 2 puff pastry sheets
    • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
    • 1 Tbsp water
    • 1 egg
    • Avocado Sauce:
    • 1/2 avocado
    • 1 Tbsp lime juice
    • Salt to taste
  • Directions

      Preheat oven to 400°F. In a medium skillet, sauté peppers in oil for a few minutes until softened. Add chicken, green onions, black beans, picante sauce and spices until heated through. Remove from heat. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry to about a 12” square. Trim pastry with the bottom side of pocket pie press. Place on top of open press. Brush edge of pastry with water and put a 1/4 cup of filling in the center. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of cheese. Fold pie press and squeeze edges together. Once sealed, place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remainder of pastry and filling. In a small bowl, mix water and egg together. Brush egg wash on empanadas. Bake until evenly browned, about 15-20 minutes.

      For sauce, mash avocado with fork in small bowl and add lime juice and salt until blended. Serve with warm empanadas.
