Breakfast Empanadas with Chipotle Sauce

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I actually look forward to getting up

on the weekends to cook for my family.

Believe it or not, I find it fun combing through recipes looking for ways to spice

up the same old boring breakfast foods. 

This chipotle sauce is really what makes this a repeat recipe in our house.

I’ve made this sauce several times outside of breakfast for my

husband who loves using it as a spread on crackers.

Open the can of biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 halves. Flatten each half with your hands or rolling pin to make larger.
