In a large bowl, mix Creamy Mac and Cheese, Shredded Chicken, Cooked Collard Greens, and Sylvia’s Great! Greens Seasoning.

Roll out your empanada dough to about 6 inches.

Place a good helping of your mixture (about a 1/2c) into the center of the dough.

Fold dough in half, and seal the open edges by using a fork to press them close.

Sprinkle a little bit of Sylvia’s Great! Greens Seasoning on top of empanada.

Let cook for about 5 minutes, then serve.
