Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    - 1 Med. Onion (Sliced any way you like)
    - 15oz Butterball Ground Turkey Meat (you can use any brand you like)
    - *10 (1 package) Goya Para Empanadas Discos (defrosted)
    -1 TB Corn Oil

    *The Goya Para Empanadas (Dough for turnover pastries) is the best one to use because it holds well and is inexpensive for a package.

Directions

Prep: This is the time to basically get everything you need together. You will need besides your ingredients a cutting board, fork, frying pan, pot and roller which is optional.

Cook:
-Take your ground turkey and add to a pot to cook all the way. At this time you can add additional seasonings you will normally use on ground turkey.
-While the ground turkey is cooking, take your onion and slice however you choose and then add it to the ground turkey half way through the cooking process. (You add it half way so that onions are still in pieces and not shriveled up within the ground turkey when it is done.)
-Cook ground turkey w/onions until the turkey is no longer pink, or to your liking.
-Once ground turkey is done, take 1 Empanadas Disc at a time and slightly stretch with fingers. A rolling pin can be used, but remember the dough can get sticky and adding flour will add uneeded calories.
-Once the disc is slightly strecthed out, add 1.5 oz of the ground turkey w/onion mixture to the disc.
-Fold the disc over to the side, like a pastry, and use the fork to press down upon the edges to seal the disc closed.
-Repeat for all 10 Discs.
-Heat frying pan with corn oil. Lightly fry each disc until they are golden brown on each side.
-Repeat frying process for all discs.

Serve each disc with some fresh sliced avocado and enjoy!!
