These Quick Empanadas with sweet potato and brie are easy to make using pre-made shortcrust pastry sheets, full of flavour and spice and a total crowd-pleaser. Chipotle Honey is used to caramelise a red pepper and onion mixture, and this flavoursome concoction is then mixed with the roasted mashed sweet potato. A final spoonful of Chipotle Paste is added for an extra kick. Pastry circles are filled with this tasty mixture and a piece of brie is pushed into the filling and then sealed by pressing the edges. Once they are baked the cheese will melt inside and combined with the delicious sweet potato and chipotle is a match made in heaven.
