Cheese empanada dumpling recipe makes a cheesy add for creamy tomato soup with a chipotle kick. Recipe developed by George Duran for Hunt's

  • 1/2 cup Pure Wesson® Canola Oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 carton (33.5 oz each) Hunt's® Tomato Sauce
  • 2 cans (6 oz each) Hunt's® Tomato Paste
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle-flavored hot pepper sauce
  • 1 can (12 oz each) evaporated milk
  • 4 cups finely shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 5 slices American cheese, chopped
  • 24 Asian dumpling wrappers (3 inch round)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Purchase ingredients from Peapod or Amazon

  1. Heat 1/4 cup oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute more or until fragrant.
  2. Add water, tomato sauce, tomato paste and pepper sauce to saucepan; stir to combine. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened slightly, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove soup from heat. Carefully blend mixture in saucepan with hand-held immersion blender until smooth. Stir in milk and keep warm; set aside.
  4. Make grilled cheese dumplings by mixing mozzarella and American cheeses in medium bowl and mashing together with a fork. Fill each dumpling wrapper with 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons cheese mixture in the center and run a wet finger around the edge of the dough. Fold in half and press edges to seal. Using a fork, press firmly around edges on both sides to completely seal dumpling.
  5. Cook dumplings in batches. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick saute pan and begin frying dumplings. Once browned on first side, turn over and add 2 tablespoons water to pan and cover immediately. Allow steam to finish cooking, about 2 minutes. Remove cover and allow water to evaporate and cook 1 minute more until golden brown. Continue cooking remaining dumplings.
  6. Place dumplings in soup and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Dumplings also may be served on the side, if desired.
