Spoon about 1 ½ tbsp. Of the beyond meat filling on the center of each empanada disc. Fold the empanada discs in half to form a half moon and gently seal the edges with your fingers. Then twist and fold the edges of the empanadas with your fingers.

Deep fry empanadas at 350°f until golden brown. Transfer to paper towels.
