Stir the browned pork into the onion mixture; cook and stir another 5 minutes. Mix the potato, peas and carrots, and raisins into the pork; allow the mixture to cook together until the vegetables are completely tender, about 10 minutes. Allow the filling to cool completely before spooning into empanada dough.

This was Delicious! ! I added some chopped jalapeno and onion. I used Grand biscuits that I flattened and used to fill them. Cilantro was also thrown in. I baked them up and served them with creamy avocado and Mexican Creme. The meat was already seasoned and chopped along with a can of beer, so I put it in the oven and went to work out. When I got back, the house smelled Good! They were very mummy if not a bit Hot from peppers. Thanks Lola. Keeper
