A great combination of ingredients and easy to make. Perfect for any theme party.

1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Tbsp. Spanish onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. Jalapeño, minced
¼ C Red Pepper (chopped)
8 oz. Picked lump crabmeat
1 – 4 oz. Chavrie® Goat Cheese Log
1 tsp. Chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp. Italian parsley (chopped)
7 oz. Corn (drained)
1 tsp. Cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Empanada dough :
2 bx. Frozen Pie dough (thawed)


Filling: In a sauté pan on medium, heat olive oil and sauté onion, garlic, jalapeño, and red pepper. Set aside to chill.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Mix sautéed vegetables with the crabmeat mixture and place in the refrigerator. Lay thawed pie dough on a lightly floured flat surface cut 3 inch circles.

To assemble, spoon about 1/2 to 3/4 Tbsp. of the filling in the center of each empanada dough rounds.

Chavrie same as Chevre
by: Sandee

I was confused about the type of cheese to use. I have since learned that Chavrie cheese is a brand name of Chevre cheese. Either way, it's a goat cheese that comes in a log. Thanks again Corrinne.

Thanks so much for this entry. I love the idea of making these with purchased pie dough and having the choice of baking them if we choose. They sound very tasty and the photo is great too!
