Mini Chorizo Empanadas - Philips AirFryer Recipe

Okay folks; this is week 2 of a 4 week challenge given to me by Philips which was to swap a weekly takeaway meal every week for a month and to join in the #AirFryerTakeIn
Last week I made Ricotta and Basil Balls which I have to say were really easy to make and oh so good to eat!

Next up I made Mini Chorizo Empanadas which the recipe says are AirFryer Take In calories of 153 per one large empanadas (except they are not large nor are are they meant to be) since they're called 'Mini' compared to a Takeaway of (on average) 245 calories.


The AirFryer works by using very little oil and something called Rapid Air Technology.  Rapid Air technology makes the hot air circulate very rapidly around the ingredients in the basket.  This heats up the ingredients in the basket from all sides at once, making it a healthy, fast and easy method to prepare tasty food. Food prepared in the Airfryer is crispy on the outside and without being dry on the inside.
A few of the recipes are a little confusing purely because the amount of ingredients don't quite make the portion sizes they say they will.  But with that said I think it's a great machine but as I pointed out in my first post personally I think if you want to cook more than just chips then you need to buy the Philips AirFryer Grill Pan as an extra.


The AirFryer comes with a wire basket which is great for chips but anything breaded I found sticks to the wire basket and the non-stick Grill Pan makes life so much easier.

The pastry cooked perfectly and the AirFryer did a great job of these Chorizo Empanadas - you can find the recipe here.

This was week 2 of 4 weeks of the #AirFryerTakeIn challenge so I'll be back very soon with the next recipe which is Thai Fishcakes with Mango Salsa!

Disclosure - I was sent the Philips AirFryer to take part in the #AirFryerTakeIn challenge along with a gift card for ingredients. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I was not required to write anything positive.
