Keto Empanadas / Hot Pockets

Keto Empanadas / Hot Pockets

These Keto Empanadas or Hot Pockets are delicious and surprisingly easy to make! Our friend, Claudia, from Mexico City shared the recipe with us and we just can't get enough of them! They're perfect freezer food too.

We stuffed ours with ham and cheese, but you can use whatever you want! From Pizza ingredients to chicken and broccoli, the options are endless!
