One of the two dishes I prepared for my Eurovision Song Contest Party was Chorizo Empanadillas.

Really easy and quick to make and you just need two ingredients…chorizo and puff pastry…actually, three if you include the egg for the egg wash! Here’s how you do it…

Cut the chorizo into bite sized pieces (or buy pieces already cut to be extra speedy!)

On a floured surface, roll out your pastry and cut out circles with a round cookie cutter.

Place 4 or 5 pieces of chorizo into the centre of each pastry circle.

Brush around the edge of the pastry with some water and fold over, crimping the edges. Beat up an egg with a little water and brush over the pastry before putting into a moderate oven (180C-200C) for about 20 minutes until the pastry is golden.
