This is excellent for a quick week night meal for busy families.
Biscuit Empanadas Recipe
I have been getting tired of eating the same thing. I really wanted empanadas today, but I didn’t have any pie crust. 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 bought on sale 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 have been telling my friends and they are willing to try to make biscuit empanadas too. Try to make your own biscuits with my biscuit recipe.
