Empanadas (Beef Turnovers)

Ingredients
1 tablespoon Goya Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup Goya Tomato Sauce
6 Goya Spanish Olives Stuffed with Minced Pimientos, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons Goya Sofrito
1 packet Sazon Goya with Coriander and Annatto
1 teaspoon Goya Minced Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Goya Dried Oregano
Goya Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 (14 ounce) package Goya Discos (yellow or white), thawed
Goya Corn Oil, for frying

Directions
1.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, about 10 minutes. Add onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes more. Stir in tomato sauce, olives, Sofrito, Sazon, garlic, oregano and black pepper. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until mixture thickens, about 15 minutes.
2.On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin, roll out discos until 1/2-inch larger in diameter. Spoon about 1 tbsp. meat mixture into middle, fold in half to form a half moon; moisten edges with water and pinch to seal closed, or seal with a fork.
3.Fill a deep saucepan with oil to a depth of 2 1/2-inches. Heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking (350 degrees F on deep-fry thermometer). Cook Empanadas in batches until crisp and golden brown, flipping once, 4 - 6 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

We've been making these with pulled chuck but you could make them with left over pulled pork.
They are also good cold the next day.

Also reserve some of the dough for fried pies.

This looks good. Where can you get the Goya Discos?

You can also filled them with fruit right?

We get them from the frozen food section of our local grocery store.

Sounds good Witt. Glad you picked up Goya for a sponsor or whatever. I like their little packets of ham flavor for beans. Yum yum.
