This is a fun appetizer! Make the mixture and the dough in advance of guests arriving so that you can just assemble and fry while guests are watching and enjoying a glass of wine :-)

Meat Filling
1/4lb ground beef cooked with onion. Add a lighly beaten egg, throw in a 1/4c of raisen, 1/4c chopped green olives, 1/4c red perpper chopped, cumin to taste and salt.Fry all together.

2C flour
2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt, 2tbsp shortening
1 egg beaten
1/2c milk

Cut circles in the dough once you roll it out. You will cool the meat mixture and spoon onto the circle of dough. Fold in half and pinch the edges closed.

Heat veg oil in frying pan approx. 1" deep. Deep fry the empanadas until they are golden brown, turning once.
Serve with a sweet chile sauce!
