Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Step 2

In medium bowl, stir together black beans, cheese, corn, Recaito and Adobo.

Step 3

Spoon 2 tbsp. cheese mixture onto middle of an empanada disc. Brush edges of pastry with egg wash. Fold pastry over filling to make a half-moon shape. Pinch and twist edges of pastry together to seal. Using paring knife, create a vent on top of empanada to allow air to escape. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture and pastry discs. Brush empanadas with more egg wash.

Step 4

Bake for 15 minutes. Reapply egg wash and bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is heated. Serve empanadas with GOYA® Salsa Pico de Gallo and guacamole for dipping.


Note: Alternatively, use GOYA® Empanada Dough for Frying and fry in GOYA® Vegetable Oil according to package directions.
