1 package

Frozen Empanada Dough, roughly 16 empanadas


Eggs, beaten, with 1 tablespoon set aside to brush on top

1/2 cup

Black Beans

1/3 cup

Diced Bell Pepper

1/3 cup

Diced Onion

1/2 cup

Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese

1 tablespoon

Olive Oil

1 cup

Greek Yogurt

1/3 cup

Roughly Chopped Fresh Cilantro

2 cloves

Garlic, peeled

1/4 cup

Olive Oil

2 tsp



  1. Preheat oven to 400. Cook Golden Brown Turkey Sausages in a large skillet according to package directions. Remove from pan, allow to cool and chop.

  2. In the same skillet, add peppers and onions, and sauté for 2-3 minutes over medium heat until translucent. Add black beans and chopped sausage; cook for additional 2-3 minutes. Push mixture to she side, turn heat to low and add eggs and cheese. Cover the pan and let cook through for 5 minutes; mix all ingredients together and remove from heat.

  3. Once mixture is cool to the touch, spoon 2 tablespoons of filling into the middle of each empanada wrapper, and fold over to close. Press the edges down with a fork or roll over to seal. Brush the tops with the reserved beaten egg and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

  4. While the empanadas are in the oven, blend the sauce. Add yogurt, cilantro, garlic, salt, and olive oil to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Serve with warm empanadas and enjoy!
