Empanadas

Submitted by: CATHY3MARSHALL

Introduction

I am not sure if these are called Gorditas or not, but they are tasty and quite filling. I am not sure if these are called Gorditas or not, but they are tasty and quite filling.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups white kidney beans
    1/4 tsp Colgin Mesquite liquid smoke
    1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/4 cup corn starch
    1/2 cup cooked spinach
    1/4 cup Mexican style shredded cheese
    1 tbsp Parmesan
    Enough water to moisten. (About 1/4 cup. I used the water off of the beans.)
    3 Ole Xtreme Wellness Tortilla Wraps

Tips

I let the wraps get quite brown to make sure the filling was cooked.


Directions

In a blender, mix beans, liquid smoke, nutritional yeast flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, spinach, and water. Scoop into a bowl. Add the corn starch and cheeses. Heat a little oil in a skillet. Place 1/3 of the mixture on one end of a tortilla wrap. Roll the wrap around the mixture tucking the ends in. Fry the wraps in the hot oil until golden brown. Serve with salsa.
