The breakfast project

My sister shared with me a recipe for Bolivian empanadas (turnovers) that she learned from her friend from - guess where?... Bolivia!!! -  Last time I ate them, I was preggers with the littlest... All of the sudden, the conversation of the empanadas came up recently when I was talking to her... I was obliged to make them again.

WOW are these empanadas good!!!... And super easy too... Just a few ingredients, so yummy. Here is what you do to make Salteñas Bolivianas (Bolivian empanadas):


1 packet of empanada discs for frying, 10 discs per pack - Brand recommended: Goya
1 small bunch of green onions, chopped
1 cup of shredded mozzarella
Powder sugar for dusting
Vegetable oil for frying

  • Mix 1 cup of shredded mozzarella with the chopped green onions.
  • Place a small amount (about 2 Tbsps) in the center of the disc, moisten your finger in a little bowl with water and wet the edges of the disc.
  • Bring the edges together and press them firmly with a fork, to avoid opening while frying.
  • Fry empanadas in batches of 2 on a pan with enough oil to cover them... (Make sure the oil is hot enough)
  • When the empanadas are golden brown, remove from oil, drain and lightly sprinkle with powered sugar.

Few ingredients... Really good empanadas... Enjoy them friends!
