Sauté sausages in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil until nicely browned. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and chopped onion to the skillet with the cumin and chili powder. Cook onion, stirring often, until soft. Add tomato and 1 tablespoon sugar and cook a few minutes longer. Mix onions mixture and sausage together in a bowl. Stir in grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill mixture for about an hour (or overnight) if possible. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out and cut empanada dough into 6-7 inch circles (see " How to Shape Empanadas "). Place about 2-3 tablespoons filling in the center of each empanada, then close circle of dough over to enclose the filling. Seal and crimp the edges. Place the empnadas on a baking sheet. Whisk the egg yolk with a teaspoon of water and brush tops and sides of the empanadas with the egg yolk mixure. Bake empanadas for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and puffed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
