My family loves empanadas. There are so many different ways to make them and an infinite number of fillings. I prefer to make empanadas in the oven instead of frying them; I also like using lean meat, vegetables or fish for the filling to keep the empanadas light. I invite you to try these tuna empanadas for your next meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 minced garlic
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup canned tuna Spanish style
  • 1/2 cup tomato puree
  • 1/3 cup olives (optional)
  • 1 can (12 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)

Directions

  • 1
    Add olive oil to a pan and sauté the garlic, and then add the red pepper and the tuna.
  • 2
    Continue to cook and add the tomato puree and olives. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.
  • 3
    Let cool for a few minutes.
  • 4
    Open the can of Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Original Crescent Rolls and separate the pieces. Fill each piece with the tuna mixture and roll up. Place in a greased baking dish and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes are until the empanadas are cooked and golden brown.
