    cup chopped onion
  • 2
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1
    teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In nonstick 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir 4 to 6 minutes or until softened. Add chili powder, salt and chipotle chile; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in black beans and corn.
  • 3
    On lightly floured surface, unroll 1 pie crust. Roll to 14-inch circle. Cut out four 6-inch circles. Repeat with remaining pie crust. Spoon about 1/4 cup black bean mixture and 2 tablespoons cheese over half of each round to within 1/2 inch of edge.
  • 4
    Brush edges with water. Fold dough over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Cut 3 small slits on top of each empanada.
  • 5
    Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until golden brown and filling is hot. Serve warm.

  • Try serving these black bean empanadas with your favorite salsa on the side.
  • While two of these savory empanadas make a hearty meal, these could also be served individually, as an appetizer.
  • Chipotles in adobo are smoked and dried jalapeños rehydrated and canned in a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic and other spices. Look for them in the global aisle of the grocery store when you're planning on making black bean empanadas.
