Semi Homemade Empanadas

Now my weekday schedules are changed, due to work. So I am always in hurry to make something fast and healthy and easy on weekdays. I make first kids so they can eat and go to sleep, Mine can wait since I eat once kids go to bed. But still its not like before when I used to make dinner in the afternoon and then have quality time with kids in the evening, but still I am enjoying my new schedule. So now when I am thinking about dinner ideas, it has to quick too. This is semi homemade because I used ready made biscuit from pillsbury instead of making dough and do it. But the best part was it was corn biscuits so it tasted awesome too. I shared it with my co worker who is from South America, and he appreciated very much , so felt good too. I used Mexican stuffing, you can use any meat and cheese, or even make it as baked samosa with the same biscuits.

Ingredients :

1 packet of Corn Biscuits from Pillsbury
Grands Homestyle Corn Biscuits

For Stuffing :

1 each onion, capsicum, carrot, zucchini (chopped)
1/4 cup frozen or fresh corn (if using frozen , thaw first)
1/4 cup soya granules
1/4 cup black beans
2 tsp. Taco Seasoning
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1 jalapenos chopped
1 tsp. oil
salt to taste


Let's make stuffing first.
In a pan add oil , add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds, then add jalapenos, cook for 30 seconds.
Add onion, carrot, corn, zucchini, capsicum, soya , black beans and mix it.
Add taco seasoning and salt and cook it for 5 minutes, you don't want to over cook veggies because it will cook later on in the oven also.
Keep it aside and open so it cools quickly.

You don't want to wait more when you are hungry.
When its about to cold. pre heat the oven at 375 F.
open the can as per package instructions.
Take one biscuit out and roll it with rolling pin and make it thin and big.
Take 2 tbsp of stuffing and put it in middle.
Seal the edges nicely and put it on baking dish.
Do with rest of the 7 biscuits.
Put it in the oven and baked it till its nice and brown for about 13-15 minutes.

See they are working for you.
Take it and let it cool for sometimes.

Serve it with salad, salsa and sour cream and pickled jalapenos.
Diner is served.
