Love meat and potatoes? Here's a tasty way to wrap up the basics for hearty appetites.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
cup refrigerated hash brown potatoes
can (8 1/4 oz) sliced carrots, drained
tablespoon dried minced onion
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
cup boiling water
Heat oven to 400°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.
In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix, 2/3 cup water, the potatoes, carrots and onion. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and boiling water until dough forms. On surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix, roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat; knead 20 times. Divide dough into 6 balls. Pat or roll each ball into 7-inch round. Place on cookie sheet.
Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture onto half of each round. Moisten edge of round with water. Fold round over beef mixture; press edge with fork to seal. Cut 3 small slits in top of each crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
Empanadas are Spanish turnovers. Usually an individual serving with a savory filling, they can also have fruit fillings and be large enough to serve a family or be bite-size appetizer pastries.
If you prefer, you can use mini cookie cutters or canapé cutters to cut decorative holes in the top of each crust, rather than cutting 3 small slits.
