Arabic style empanadas

What can raise a bad day? I pick it up with these empanadas that are my Arabic version of the thing, who's following me?



  • 500 grams of special  minced meat 
  • 20 tops of  puff  pastry 1 red
  • chili pepper
  • 2 medium onions
  • 100 grams of black olives
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Salt, pepper, ground chili pepper to taste
  • Pinch of paprika and cumin
  • 1 tomato (optional)
  • 20 ml olive oil


Saute the onions, chili pepper and  tomato  in oil for five minutes over medium heat. Add the  meat , season, put the  lemon juice, and olives and stir mixing well on medium heat for three to four minutes more (leave semi raw meat because it is finished cooking in the oven). Allow to cool and taste. Add lemon if needed. Fill the caps into open triangles above. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot or warm with lemon nearby for anyone who wants to add.
