Spicy Turkey Empanada Filling

90 mins (prep 60, cooking 30)
17 ingredients
12-14 servings
After looking around at some various empanada and similar recipes, and trying to remember what was in the ones I had in Chile, I came up with this. There are some good empanada dough recipes elsewhere on the site, so I didn't bother to include the dough. The chile relish is another recipe on the site - basically jalapenos, garlic, and wine vinegar. They freeze and reheat well, so I like to make a batch to take for lunch or to pull out when I just don't want to cook.
