  • 8 ounces ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Scotch bonnet chili pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 tsp. hot curry powder or mild curry powder
  • 1 cube Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon Cube(s)
  • 1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 package (14 oz.) frozen empanada discos con color, thawed
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Cook first 4 ingredients in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Add water, bread crumbs and Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon Cube(s) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed; let cool.
  • Roll out discos slightly on a lightly floured surface. Spoon a scant 2 tablespoons beef mixture into center. Fold each in half, pressing out air bubbles. Moisten edges with water and seal tightly with a fork.
  • Heat oil to 350°F in a deep medium skillet. Cook patties, a few at a time, about 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once; drain on paper towels.
