When you think of Empanadas, what comes to mind?
Well, of course, a yummy pocket of deliciousness. Second, you might think of different types of empanadas, Beef, chicken, pork, and vegetarian?
But I'm sure you didn't think of Guava empanadas, did you?I'm a huge fan of Guava, and I am excited to share my Guava and cheese empanada recipe that is super simple to make.

Empanadas on wax paper


  • Sweet guava paste
  • Empanada wrappers
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Spread the guava paste into the center of each wrapper (1 1/2 tablespoons per empanada) and sprinkle in your mozzarella cheese (I tend to go overboard on the cheese but not enough to come out when folding)
  2. Fold over the wrapper, and with a fork, pinch edges together to seal.
  3. Now in a pan, add the oil and wait until it's hot enough to add the empanadas.
  4. On medium heat, carefully place the empanadas and cook until golden brown on both sides! It takes about 4 - 5 minutes.
  5. Once removed from the oil, let cool on top of a plate with paper towels. (This helps absorb the access oil)
