Air  Fryer Empanadas

Air Fryer Empanadas are crunchy, rich, and savory with every bite. This is a delicious empanada recipe that has a hearty ground meat filling.


   1 refrigerated pie crust dough  ½ pound lean ground beef  ¼ cup yellow onion chopped  1 cup frozen mixed vegetables like peas, carrots, and corn  1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning  ½ teaspoon salt  ¼ teaspoon black pepper Egg Wash  1 large egg whisked  1 tablespoon water

In a medium pan, over medium-high heat, use a wooden spoon to break up and brown the ground beef, then drain the grease through a strainer. Transfer ground beef mixture to a medium bowl, then add in onion, mixed vegetables, and Italian seasoning, salt and black pepper. Stir together to fully combine, then set aside.

Roll out empanada dough on a cutting board and cut circles, about 5-6 inches in diameter. Use a cookie cutter, pastry cutter or biscuit cutter if needed to make the dough rounds the same size. Spoon a small amount of the seasoned ground beef mixture onto one side of the circle. Fold dough over the meat filling, sealing in the mixture, then pinch, or use a fork to seal edges.


Brush with egg wash, then place them in the air fryer basket, in a single layer on parchment paper liner, or spritzed with olive oil spray. Air fry at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, until the dough is golden brown.


Serve with your favorite salsa or sauce, while hot.
