Pork Carnitas Empanadas

Ok, so I am first to admit, I am a fan of the "cheat" cooking.  I made these empanadas with pre-made biscuit dough (you know, the pop and bake ones?) and I cooked the pork in the crockpot so these were totally and completely way too easy to make.  I mean, who wouldn't be impressed with pork empanadas?  And when you have very little work on your part, they are still just as delicious!  I like to put a little hot sauce on top of them and then dip them in some guacamole.

[What you need]

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas
2 cans biscuits
toppings of your choice (I'm partial to hot sauce and guacamole!)

[What to do]

Preheat oven to 400.  Split each biscuit into 2 so you have to circles.  Fill one side with about 2 tablespoons of pork carnitas and top with the other half, sealing the edges closed.  Continue this with each biscuit.  Then bake for about 10-14 minutes until golden brown.

Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
