Hi Guys, here is another recipe I know you will love.  This is a Pureto Rican street food that I enjoy so much.  It is easy to make and delicious.

You can fry this or you can use the air fryer if you like.  I used the air fryer and the pastalellos came out great as if I fried them.  You have to give this a try and let me know what you think.

I do have a video up on the picadilo and my home made safrito so go check those out and subscribe while you are there.

Here is the link to my channel Ruthycancook

2 ½ cups of home made picadilo

Oil for frying

1 tbsp. water (for sealing)

1 package of Pastalello disk


Pre-heat a medium size frying pan with the oil.  Put enough oil to cover the pastalellos half way.

While oil is heating make the Pastalellos.  Remove the pastalello disk from packaging and place on plate.

You are going to need to seal the disk so to do that, put your finger in the water and run it around the edge of the disk.  This will help to seal both sides together.  Then with a fork you can crimp the edges giving it a pie look.  Place the finish Pastalello on a plate and continue making until all disk are used.

Once oil is hot add in about 2 to 3 pastalellos at a time and fry on each side until golden brown.

Remove from pan and place on a plate lined with a paper towels paper towels to absorb any oil. Repeat this until all pastalellos are e cooked.

Let them sit for about 5 minutes to cool some, and then ready to eat.

You can also put these in the air fryer at 370 for 8 minutes turning them over at the half way mark.

Then remove from air fryer and let cool and enjoy.
