How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.  Spray the foil with vegetable cooking spray cooking spray.

Step 2

Stir the chicken, salsa, cheese, corn and onion in a large bowl.  Beat the egg white and water in a small bowl with a fork.

Step 3

Place 1 dough disk onto a work surface.  Spoon 2 mounds of chicken mixture (1 heaping tablespoon each) 1-inch apart on the bottom half of disk, 1/2-inch from the edge.  Fold the dough in half over the filling, pressing firmly between the mounds of chicken mixture.  Cut into 2 empanadas.  Crimp the edges with a fork to seal.  Place onto the baking sheet.  Repeat with the remaining dough disks.  Brush the empanadas with the egg white mixture.  Season, if desired.

Spoon the sour cream and lime juice into a food processor.  Cover and process until combined.  Add the roasted peppers, poblano chile and cilantro.  Cover and pulse until the roasted peppers are finely chopped but not puréed.  Serve with the empanadas for dipping.
