1 1/2 cups

In a pinch for a potluck, able to throw this together - used veggie meat (Morningstar breakfast patties) instead, and even layed pastry dough out flat on bottom and another layer on top of filling, pre-cut and baked! Very Yummy! Always have pastry dough handy in freezer :)
It was ok. I've had better empanadas. I think I'm just not THAT into black beans.
This was great. I read that a lot of reviewers had to increase the seasonings so i went ahead and used chorizo instead of plain sausage... there was no need to even think about messing with the seasonings. My husband loved it along with salsa!
really, really good! and very easy to make. I only used half of the recipe though, as it was served as one of several appetizers for a party of 20.
Very tasty. I omitted the pork and added corn and kidney beans to the black beans. Also used pepperjack cheese and used salsa instead of tomato sauce. I had no problems with the puff pastry, just don't let it get too soft. Made 8 medium sized empanadas. Froze the leftovers. Will definitely make again!
I made these as part of a Halloween feast that was zombie themed. (they were made into "intestines", gross!) But despite their intentional gross appearance, they were a delicious hit that didn't last long! I've made them several times since then in a more conventional shape ;)
Fantastic recipe, we will make this often! My suggestion, double the recipe and freeze the extra for awesome easy meals later!
Only modifications were using of ground beef instead of pork and increasing the cumin, chili powder and crushed pepper by about 50%. We also made our own dough; had more filling than dough so should have increased dough recipe by about 50% as well (recipe had 2.25 cups flour, so we should have increased to around 3.25).
Really good and easy to make. I did make some changes, starting with making 1/2 the recipe since I didn't need the full amount. I'm vegetarian so I left out the pork and used a full can of black beans instead. I had already starting making this when I realized that i didn't have tomato sauce so I used salsa instead, and it added fantastic flavor. I really enjoyed this recipe, I ate it as a meal by adding a salad with margarita dressing (from this site) but I know these would make great appetizers for a party. Thank you for the recipe!
