1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F and wash and dry all produce. In Step 4, if you have the time, bake the empanadas for an extra 5-6 mins, it will make them extra crispy and crunchy! Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then chicken. Sprinkle over Mexican seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 4-5 min.**

2

Combine cream cheese, cooked chicken and half the garlic in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Season with pepper. Set aside. On two parchment-lined baking sheets, unroll pastries. Cut pastries in half to create four rectangles.

3

On the lower half of the pastry (closest to you), divide chicken mixture between each pastry rectangle. Sprinkle over mozzarella cheese. Working with one pastry rectangle at a time, fold the side of pastry (without mixture) over the filling. Using your fingers, firmly pinch the borders closed. Roll the edges back over themselves to seal tightly.

4

Bake empanadas in the top and middle of oven, one sheet on each rack. Bake, rotating the sheets halfway through baking, until pastry is golden-brown and cooked through, 18-20 min. Meanwhile, core, then cut peppers into 1/4-inch pieces. Zest, then juice one lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges.

5

Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp oil, then corn, peppers and remaining garlic. Cover with a lid and cook, carefully shaking the pan often, until corn kernels are dark golden-brown, 6-8 min. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in lime zest and 1 tbsp lime juice.

6

Divide empanadas between plates. Top with pepper and corn salsa. Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired. (NOTE: Try not to dive in too fast. The inside of these empanadas will be extra hot!)
