Preheat grill to medium-high.
Place barbacoa on the grill and cook to desired doneness (155ºF internal temperature is recommended). Allow to rest 10 minutes then slice thinly.
To make empanadas: cut rolled out pie crust into 4 equal round pieces (recipe can be doubled by rolling out the extra pie dough and repeating the steps).
In the center of each piece of dough, place a pinch of cheese, a spoonful of pico de gallo, a few slices of barbacoa and a spoonful of salsa.
Carefully seal the empanadas by folding the ends over until they touch then crimp the edges with your fingers or by gently pressing with a fork. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Cool slightly before serving. Feel free to garnish with salsa, guacamole or any dipping sauce.
