How to Make It

Step 1

Brown pork in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Add jalapeño pepper and next 4 ingredients; cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Stir in raisins, 1/2 cup salsa, and lime juice. Remove from heat, and stir in almonds and sour cream. Cool.

Step 2

Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Separate each biscuit in half to make 16 rounds. Roll each round on a lightly floured surface to a 4-inch circle.

Step 3

Spoon pork mixture evenly in center of each dough circle. Fold dough over filling, pressing edges with a fork to seal. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill up to 8 hours.

Step 4

Place empanadas on lightly greased baking sheets. Brush evenly with egg.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheets. Serve with remaining 1 1/2 cups chipotle salsa.

Step 6
