Bonus: Mango Empanadas

I didn't make a whole batch of chicken filling. But I made a whole batch of pastry wrappers. So I made dessert. 

And you might want to too!

Mango Empanadas
Makes 2 empanadas

2 balls leftover empanada dough
1 mango, diced
1/4 c. sweetened flaked coconut
1/3 tsp vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
1/2 tbsp flour

In a small bowl, combine mango, coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, and flour.

Take your leftover empanada dough and press out into circles. Put half of the mango mixture on each circle.

In your large skillet, heat 1" of oil until shimmering. Carefully place empanadas in the oil and cook till browned on both sides.

Once empanadas are done, place on a paper towel on an oven-safe plate and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.

Serve with vanilla ice cream. And maybe some chocolate sauce if it hadn't been eaten up the night before...
