This is excellent for a quick week night meal for busy families. With refrigerated biscuit dough, this can be made in under 30 minutes.
Biscuit Empanadas Recipe
We are getting tired of eating the same thing. I really wanted empanadas today, but I didn’t have any pie crust to make them.
And I was just too lazy to make some. So the mother of invention stepped in and I looked at my fridge. I had taco meat, cheese and biscuits and BOOM! Biscuit empanadas were born.
We have had this twice as a meal already. It has gone over well both times we have served this to our munchins. I told my friends how easy this recipe is and they are willing to try to make biscuit empanadas too for their families.
