- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken or turkey broth
- 1 1/4 cups leftover shredded cooked turkey breast (5 ounces)
- 3/4 cup frozen peas and carrots
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 10 frozen Goya Empanada Discos (the ones for baking, thawed)

Heat a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion, celery, and parsley cooking until onions are translucent. Add minced garlic, cooking for an additional minute.
Combine the broth and cornstarch together and mix well.
Add the turkey, frozen peas and carrots, 3/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, thyme and broth, stir and cook medium heat, bring to a boil then cook until thickened and heated through, 2-3 minutes.
Place a disc on your work surface. Take 2 tablespoon of the turkey mixture and place in the middle of each disc. Using a pastry brush, place the egg wash on the outer edges of the disc. Fold the disc over and gently press the edges to create a seal. Use a fork and press around the edges to seal.
Brush the egg wash over one side of each of the empanadas.
