Pro Tips!

  • When heating refrigerated empanadas, place them in the oven once it is preheated.

  • When heating frozen empanadas, place them in oven when you turn it on. Either way, start timer the moment empanadas are placed into the oven.

  • To check if empanadas are ready once the timer is up, flip empanada over and touch underbelly. The internal temperature will be easy to gauge this way.

  • If freezing empanadas, wrap well so as to prevent freezer burn.

  • If heating 8+ empanadas at a time, add at least 5 minutes of heating time to make up for heat displacement.
