Slap Ya Mama's Sweet & Spicy Empanadas

Slap Ya Mama's Sweet & Spicy Empanadas

1 pound ground pork
1/2 seranno pepper, minced
1 teaspoon chili power
2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Hot Cajun Seasoning
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups habanero chipotle salsa
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon honey
1 can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

Cook pork over med-high heat until no pink remains, drain. Add next 7 ingredients and mix well. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup salsa, almonds, 1 Tablespoon honey, and 1/2 cup sour cream. Cool mixture. 

Separate 8 biscuit dough and flatten out to form a circle. Place a spoonful of pork mix in center of each circle, fold over, and press edges with a fork to seal. 

Put on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 18-20 mins, or until golden. Cool about 5 minutes. 

Mix remaining 1 cup salsa and 1/2 cup sour cream to make a dipping sauce to serve with the empanadas.
