Do not buy these empanadas
You are supposed to keep these Goya empanadas frozen until you’re ready to cook them. Then you’re supposed to start cooking them in a pan covered in oil (according to the directions). The problem with this is that the empanadas are stuck together with pieces of paper between them.
Because they’re frozen you can’t break the empanadas apart. I tried to separate them by putting them under hot water, but that made them all gross. You aren’t supposed to thaw them so I started cooking them with the paper in the middle. Minutes passed and the empanadas still couldn’t be broken apart. I didn’t think it was a good idea to keep cooking paper so I stopped. I then threw the empanadas in the garbage.
I am now hunting for a better brand of frozen empanadas.
