Cook until golden brown, 4-5 minutes longer. Test Kitchen tip If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make this recipe in an oven.
Make sure the package you choose is cold with no holes or tears. In the past there were only 2 options: in your oven or stove top and more often they were deep-fried.
Personally I like the fried crispy texture on the outside BUT not the oily after-taste. When using hot air to get a crunchy outside you avoid the heavy oily flavor, and negative health issues that come with submerging in oil.
Quality ground beef Refrigerated pie dough Bell peppers Taco seasoning Cheese Onion Beef broth Whisked egg wash is great for a glossy outside When using refrigerated pie crusts like these, you’ll want to first leave them on the counter for about 45 minutes.
This will bring them closer to room temperature which will allow you to roll them out and cut them easier. You can use a circular cookie cutter or top of a glass to cut 4 circles into the dough.
Brown ground beef Over medium heat on the stove top, add a bit of olive oil, diced onions and bell peppers with your hamburger. Preheat air fryer Set machines to 350 degrees F for 5 minutes while you’re prepping the rest.

Perfect appetizer or dinner idea you and your kids will love. In a medium pan over medium heat, cook ground beef, green peppers, red peppers, and onions until ground beef is browned and onions are transparent.

Place empanadas (4 at a time) in a greased air fryer basket. Serve with your choice of sour cream, salsa, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes etc.
I’ve baked them in the oven in the past, but this was the first time trying them in the airfryer, and they turned out perfect, golden and flaky on the outside and hot in the inside with no oil! Because they are so quick to whip up, I made a batch this morning and packed it in Madison’s lunch box (took me about 10 min start to finish).
The chicken was delicious, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside, and they both tasted exactly the same. The pros to using the air fryer is it cooked in about half the time which is pretty awesome.
The cons, it’s bulky and takes up a lot of space on your counter or pantry. The basket that holds the food is small, so if you’re cooking for a large family it’s probably not for you.
Whisk the egg whites with water, then brush the tops of the empanadas. Bake 2 or 3 at a time in the air fryer 8 minutes, or until golden.

Empanadas are savory turnovers with roots that trace back to Spain. These days, most people associate them with Latin American cuisine, and they’re popular street food in areas with large Hispanic populations.
Latin American empanadas are made with a soft dough that’s wrapped around a flavorful filling before being deep-fried (or, in this case, air fried) to crispy, crunchy perfection. Empanada dough is similar to pie crust, but is a little less flaky and more tender.
These frozen “discos” mean you can have delicious homemade empanadas without the hassle of making your own dough from scratch. It’s a great shortcut, similar to using premade wrappers for these Hairdryer Egg Rolls.
You can use either color, but I love the subtle earthy flavor that the addition of Annette gives the yellow dough. These empanadas freeze really well, so I love making a double batch to have on hand for easy snacks or appetizers.
