  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Remove one sheet of puff pastry from the freezer and thaw in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling by combining the leftover mashed potatoes, shredded turkey, chili powder, parsley, cilantro, salt and freshly ground black pepper in a bowl.
  4. Once the dough has defrosted, use a little flour to roll out the dough to about 1/8 of an inch thick and cut it in half horizontally.
  5. Cut each half vertically into 3 equal pieces; you should have 6 squares.
  6. Place 1/3 cup of the turkey/potato mixture in the middle of each square.
  7. Fold over each square so one corner meets the other, making a triangle.
  8. Press the sides down using a fork or pinch with your fingers (if they don't stick, moisten them slightly).
  9. Repeat with the other five.
  10. Lay them out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  11. Brush empanadas with the egg wash so they will get nice and brown.
  12. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden.
  13. Serve either hot or cold.
