Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 200°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat up some oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the beef and onion to the skillet and stir until the beef is browned and the onion is softened, which should take about 5 minutes.
  • Add the potato to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Stir everything together and cook until the potato is almost tender, which should take about 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomato, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and salt to the skillet and stir everything together.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the potato is fork-tender, which should take about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the cilantro. Let it cool.
  • Take each dough disk and add 2 tablespoons of filling along the middle. Fold the dough in half to form a half-moon shape and press the edges together to seal. Roll the edge to form a ½-inch rim and crimp it with a fork. Place the empanadas on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Refrigerate the empanadas until they are cold, which should take about 30 minutes.
  • Line the bottom of a 6- to 8-quart air fryer basket with parchment paper that is slightly smaller than the basket. Depending on the air fryer settings, preheat it to 360°F or 370°F for 3 minutes.
  • Place 4 empanadas in the prepared basket and brush the tops with beaten egg. Air fry them for 8 minutes.
  • Turn the empanadas over and brush them with egg. Air fry them until they are golden brown and firm, which should take about 6 minutes longer.
  • Place the cooked empanadas on a wire rack and keep them warm in the oven. Air fry the remaining empanadas.
  • Serve the warm empanadas with salsa or aji picante sauce.
