Preparing the empanadas -- Take a disc in your hand; set on your palm and use a tablespoon to place meat in the middle. It's okay to be generous when filling empanadas. Fold over, place on table; then use a fork to close the edges by pressing fork down to seal. Hint: May need to damped the edges of empanada disc to ensure seal is tight. Once all are done, deep fry until golden brown. You can fry 2-3 empanada at the same time.
