These empanadas are delicious bites full of flavor. I thought about this combination of textures because I adore the creaminess of Asadero cheese, and the best part is that it is made with part skim milk, meaning that it’s lighter than a regular cheese. It melts beautifully giving lots of creaminess to these empanadas. Queso fresco gives them a good bite, and it´s a great complement to the bell peppers and the roasted chicken.

If you have any filling leftovers, I suggest to make some quesadillas. And if you want to make them spicier, just add some chopped jalapeño peppers to the cheese – chicken mixture, and you won’t be disappointed.
