Now that school is out, the children are keen of being part of the menu decisions and do have plenty of suggestions. My main goal is to spend as little time in the kitchen as I can to enjoy all the summer activities while pleasing my family. Looking over the list of dishes the kids want to indulge in this summer, and inspired by how easy it was to create my Super Fast Crunchy Taco Bowl, I decided to forgo the lengthy traditional process of making Empanadas and speed up the process with Hamburger Helper®
This twist on our beloved Empanadas or turnovers will be echoing across all Latin households. I am sure many mamacitas are going to rejoice in this find and put Empanadas Hamburger Helper® style on the menu on a weekly basis! That is because, just like Hamburger Helper®, Empanadas can be made with either chicken, fish, beef, or turkey!
Here is our recipe for Cheesy Beef Empanadas in a Flash:
- 1 box of Hamburger Helper® Cheesy Enchilada
- 1 pound of lean ground beef
- 1 pack of Empanada rounds
- 1 cup of Mexican style shredded cheese
- Start by browning the beef
- Continue the process by following the direction on the Hamburger Helper® Cheesy Enchilada
- Once the above is done, add the cup of Mexican style cheese to the beef mix. We like our Empanadas extra cheesy.
- Next, layout an Empanada round and spoon beef mix onto one half of the round. Two teaspoons per round will do.
- Fold the round over and seal it with a fork.
- Once all your rounds are filled, put the made Empanadas in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
I can not believe how easy and fast making Empanadas now is using hamburger helper!! I have cut the time to make Empanadas by about 80 minutes!!! Viva!! Woot!!
