Growing up having a fritura like empanadas, alcapurria or a relleno de papa was usually on special occasions. Sometimes on the weekends my parents would stop by a local place (which never conveniently had everything to make them yourself like Walmart) and pick some up. The frituras were not readily available to have after school or for dinner with good reason, as they’re a bit time consuming to make. Now as a mom of seven, I don’t have time to be making them from scratch either, but what I do have are Campbell Soup Company products like Swanson® Premium Chicken and Pace® Salsa that cut down the cooking time in half! Scroll down to see how I make my three ingredient chicken empanadas
With back-to-school season not far off (we start in August), I rely on products like Swanson® Premium Chicken (already cooked and ready to use for quick meals) that is low fat and heart healthy. Pace® Salsas genuine southwest flavor that gives meal an instant kick of flavor and is pretty much guaranteed to be good on anything but ice cream, to help create delicious after school snacks just like the three ingredient chicken empanadas I enjoyed as a kid. To help keep me energized I treat myself with yummy V8+Energy® (found in the juice aisle at Walmart). Fans say it gives them steady energy, just the thing need for the kids back-to-school season. And it’s only 50 calories!

I love empanadas but they always take me forever to make. This seems like a simple, easy week night recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

I have not made any savory empanadas yet.., what I have made instead is the sweet ones. For the stuffing, I use sweetened coconut and deep fry the empanadas. Yum!
i grew up eating chicken empanadas and this totality hits close to home. thanks so much for sharing a simple version of a recipe that reminds me of home.

How easy and simple! Can you bake empanadas? I’ve always thought they were too much trouble but using the can chicken saves a step.
