      I’ve ‘upgraded’ my last recipe, hence the title…
      Chicken Empanadas II
      2 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
      1 cup Mexican-style 4 cheese blend, finely shredded
      1/3 cup chipolte-flavored mayonnaise
      2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
      1 egg
      1 tbs water
      1 pkg ready-to-use refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
      1 tsp chili powder
      Heat oven to 375º.
      Combine first 4 ingredients. Whisk egg and water until blended.
      Unroll 1 pie crust on lightly floured surface. Roll out to 12-inch diameter with rolling pin.

      Cut into 8 (4-inch) rounds with biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place in single layer on parchment-covered baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pie crust.
      Spoon 2 tbs chicken mixture onto center of each dough round.

      Brush edge with egg. Fold in half. Gently press tops to remove excess air.

      Seal edges with fork. Brush with remaining egg. Sprinkle with chili powder.
      Bake 15 min.

      or until golden brown. Makes 16
