These are great!! After working all day, I hated coming home and having to cook dinner. Then I discovered Shortcuts! The first time I made this, I had my husband eating out of my hand. Great taste and prep time is minutes!! Would recommend to all who don't like long prep time but wants something good to eat.

Empanadas! WOW, I am not one for trying new things. And I try alot to get out of cooking dinners. My cooking is so the same old. As soon as I received this e-mail recipe I took one look at the picture and WOW my family enjoyed it all. Let's just say more of these easy, not to much time consuming healthy meal recipes. I might actually end up loving to cook. Great recipe! Thank You.
