What You Need

  • 1 can (12.5 ounces) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
  • 1 cup Pace® Garlic & Lime Verde Restaurant Style Salsa
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 1 green onion, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 14 disks (6-inch) frozen flour or corn empanada dough, at room temperature

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped drained jarred roasted red bell pepper
  • 1/2 poblano chile, seeded and diced (about 2 tablespoons)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with vegetable cooking spray cooking spray.
  2. Stir the chicken, salsa, cheese, corn and onion in a large bowl. Beat the egg white and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Fold the dough in half over the filling, pressing firmly between the mounds of chicken mixture. Cut into 2 empanadas. Crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Place onto the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough disks. Brush the empanadas with the egg white mixture. Season, if desired.

  5. Spoon the sour cream and lime juice into a food processor. Cover and process until combined. Add the roasted peppers, poblano chile and cilantro. Cover and pulse until the roasted peppers are finely chopped but not puréed. Serve with the empanadas for dipping.
