EMPANADAS (CHEESE AND BEAN TURNOVERS)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb corn flour (masa harina)
  • 1/2 lb dough flour or Maseca
  • 4 oz vegetable oil
  • 1/4 lb Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 lb chorizo sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup fried beans
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation

Dough: Combine dough flour, corn flour, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir in water gradually until smooth.

Dough must be slightly sticky. Test dough consistency by flattening a small ball between your hands. If dough edges crack, add more water. Test until edges are completely smooth. Cover dough with a damp kitchen towel.

Filling: Heat fried beans in a saucepan over medium high. Add onions, salt, and Worcestershire sauce.

Heat chorizo sausage in another saucepan over medium high. Whilst stirring, cook until meat is cooked.

Turnovers: Roll dough out 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into circles of 4 to 5-inch diameters. Brush rounds with water.

Place 2 teaspoons chorizo sausage, 1 teaspoon cheese, 1 teaspoon fried beans filling on each round. Fold over and seal by crimping with a fork, making a narrow rim.

Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium high. Add turnovers and cook turning until light brown.

Serve warm.
