Prep Time: 35 Minutes

Time to Table: 50 Minutes

Serves: 15 (2 per serving)


  • 2/3 cup finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle pepper
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from 7 ounce can chipotle chilies in adobo sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons taco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 14.1 ounce package refrigerated pie crust dough
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup Daisy Sour Cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Move the oven rack to the center position. Mix the chicken, cheese, chiles, adobo sauce, taco sauce and chopped cilantro in medium bowl. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out one pie crust to a 12-inch circle. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut out 15 circles. Using half the chicken mixture, place 1 slightly rounded teaspoon mixture in center of each circle. Brush the outside edges lightly with the egg. Fold over to make half-moons and pinch the edges to seal. Place the empanadas 1-inch apart on a large ungreased cookie sheet. Press around sealed edges with a fork. Prick the tops with a fork and brush with the egg. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, using the remaining pie crust and chicken mixture and cheese, prepare the remaining appetizers. Place the second batch of empanadas on another cookie sheet. Bake as directed above. Mix the sour cream and garlic powder in small bowl. Serve the empanadas with a dollop of the sour cream mixture.

The photo clearly shows a green colored dip for the empanadas, however, the dip recipe only calls for sour cream and garlic powder... which would not be too tasty or interesting. Should there be cilantro, lime, something added to the ingredient list for the dip? THANK YOU for clearing this up!
