Ingredients Preparation Share




  1. Heat oven to 375ºF (190ºF). Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened and translucent for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the peppers and garlic, cook for about 1 minute. Incorporate the tuna, tomato sauce and olives. Crumble the tuna with a spoon.
  3. Cook the mixture until the tomato sauce begins to boil, about 5 minutes more. Add the parsley and season with Adobo; remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Place the dough lids on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil and smeared with oil and with a spoon put ¼ cup of the tuna-based preparation in the center of the dough.
  5. With a kitchen brush, paint the edges of the dough with the egg; place another circle of dough on top. Gently press the edges with your fingers to close the patty.
  6. Repeat the same steps with the rest of the filling until 6 patties are made. Paint the empanadas with the egg on top.
  7. Put the tray in the oven. Let cook until the dough grows, brown slightly and is fully cooked for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
