Yummy Empandas

Cheese empandas was the first food I remember ever seeing someone cook when I was a little girl. My grandmother use to make them for me, my sister and my cousin every summer vacation we went with her to Puerto Rico. She taught all three of us how to make them at a very young age. They are extremely easy to make and cook really fast. So you can make them if you're in a hurry or if you simply don't want to spend hours of cooking to fulfill your hunger because these cheese empandas hit the spot!

  • A package of discos (dough for turnover pastries)
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Oil
  • Frying pan
  • A rolling pin
  • Fork
  • Tablespoon
  • Measuring cup


  1. Make sure the discos have defrosted so you are able to flatten them with the rolling pin. (If you do not have a rolling pin that is not a problem you can flatten them using your hands.)
  2. Once flatted put a tablespoon or two of cheese in the center of the flatten disco.
  3. Fold over the disco so both of the ends touch.
  4. Take your fork and press down on the sides to close the disco. (Do that on both sides)
  5. Put your stove and a medium level heat and fill your frying pan up with a cup and half of oil.
  6. Once the pan starts boiling place the cheese filled discos into the boiling oil.
  7. Make sure to check them often and once they are golden flip them over so the other side becomes golden as well.
  8. Once both sides are golden take them out and place them on a plate.
  9. Make sure to take a paper towel and dab any extra oil that is on them.
