Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Mix flour, 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk, orange peel and egg until a dough is formed; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Mix remaining 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and mashed sweet potatoes; refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface; cut into 6-inch squares. Fill with sweet potato mixture. Fold over to close and crimp with a fork to seal the edges.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large skillet. Fry empanadas in hot oil, turning to cook on both sides, until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve drizzled with sweetened condensed milk.
