|1/2 tsp (2 mL)||garlic powder|
|1/4 tsp (1 mL)||salt|
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C) and line 2 cooking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef, onions, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper for 8 minutes or until beef is cooked through. Drain any excess fat. Stir in grapes and set aside.
Empanadas: Use a bowl or cookie cutter to cut twelve 5-inch circles out of the pre-rolled puff pastry. Lay circles out on the parchment-lined cooking tray. Spoon 3 tbsp (45 mL) of filling into the middle of each circle. In a small bowl whisk together egg and water. Brush edge of each circle with egg wash and fold pastry in half, enclosing the filling inside. Press edges down with a fork. Arrange empanadas on lined cooking tray. Brush the egg wash on top of each empanada. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are golden.
Chutney: In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, stir in grapes, onions, ginger, garlic powder and salt. Press grapes against side of pan to release juices and bring to a simmer. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring often, until very little liquid remains. Cool completely. Serve chutney alongside the freshly baked empanadas.
