    03 Method
    • Step 1
      Preheat oven to 400℉ and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
    • Step 2
      In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, then add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat.
    • Step 3
      Return heat to medium, then stir tomato paste into beef. Add oregano, cumin and paprika, then season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and jalapeños and cook until the flavors are incorporated and the juice of the tomatoes has mostly reduced, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
    • Step 4
      Onto a lightly floured surface, roll out pie crust. Using a small bowl or a 3” biscuit cutter, cut out small circles. Add cooked ground beef to one side of each pie crust round then top with cheddar and Monterey jack. Fold the pie crust over the ground beef then press a fork around the edges to seal the pie crust. Repeat with remaining ingredients then brush all empanadas with egg wash.
    • Step 5
      Bake until the crust is golden, about 25 minutes.
    • Step 6
      Garnish with cilantro and serve with sour cream.
