Made these last night, man were they good.

Deer Empenadas
The Filling
1 lb ground deer or hamburger
1 potato
1 large onion
Jalapenos if you like it hot
Taco seasoning
Ketchup
Garlic powder and onion powder
Salsa
Frozen pie crusts (the kind that unroll)
And a beer! I like Shiner Bock
Grated cheddar cheese

Dice the onion and potato and peppers carmelize them in an iron skillet with a little oil, then remove them from the skillet (high heat)
Brown your meat in a skillet and drain any fat if you need to then add some taco seasoning, and a bunch of garlic and onion powder
Once the meat is browned and the seasonings are added, pour in a beer and use a spatula to scrape up any spices, onions, etc off the bottom (that’s all good flavor)
Add the onion, potato, and peppers back into the mix
Add some salsa and some ketchup
Keep it cookin low until the liquid has evaporated.

The crust
Thaw out the frozen pie crusts (unless you make your own pastry) and use a bowl or something round to cut out circles, roughly 6 inches in diameter.
Spoon The mixture into the middle of the cut out pastry and top with some cheese. It helps to coat the edges with a little bit of egg, then fold the pastry over the mixture like a taco and press the edges together with a fork. Put each completed empanada on a cookie sheet with some flour sprinkled on it.
Once you have put everything together, brush some egg over the top and poke a few hole in the top with a fork.
Cook em until the crust is golden brown. I like mine a little crispy.

They’re great with some hot sauce.
