For the crust:
6 Tablespoons water
2/3 C. Riceland Rice Bran Oil
2 C. all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
For the filling:
1 lb. ground beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
1 package Rice N' Easy Yucatan Arroz Rojo Rice
Add all of the ingredients for the crust into a bowl and mix until well combined. Set aside.
In a sauté pan on medium-high heat, add the ground beef and taco seasoning. Sauté until the meat is cooked throughout, about 7-10 minutes. Add in the rice. Stir until combined and rice is heated through. Set aside.
Roll out small rounds of dough to create a thin round. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of filling onto one side of the dough. Fold the dough over and press to close. Take a fork around the edge to crimp shut.
Place two empanadas into the air fryer. Set temperature to 400 degrees and cook for 8 minutes, until empanadas are golden brown. Repeat until all empanadas are done.
Serve with your favorite toppings like salsa, guacamole or sour cream.
