Ingredients

Chili Lime Dipping Sauce:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place a large saute pan over medium heat and add oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, jalapeno, garlic, green onions and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, cheese, cream cheese, sauteed mixture and hot sauce together.

Whisk the egg in a small bowl. Set aside. Sprinkle flour on your work surface and unroll the pie dough.

Roll out each round to a 13-inch circle. Cut each crust into eight 4-inch circles with a biscuit cutter. You can knead the scraps and then roll out, if necessary. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of the chicken mixture into the center of each round. Brush the edges with the egg wash and fold each circle in half. Gently press on the top of the empanada to release any air. Seal the edges with a fork and brush the top with the remaining egg wash. Sprinkle with chile powder. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Serve the chicken empanadas with the Chili Lime Dipping Sauce.

Chili Lime Dipping Sauce:

Combine the yogurt, chipotle and lime zest and juice in a bowl.
