Journey Through The Empanadas

Journey Through The Empanadas

Many cultures have their own traditional meat-filled pastry. They are portable, easy to make and delicious for lunch, as an afternoon snack, or as an appetizer at a party or before your evening meal.

Empanadas are made by folding pastry dough over a stuffing, which may consist of meat, chicken, cheese, vegetables or other ingredients. The empanada is then baked or fried. The name originates from the Spanish verb empanar, meaning “to wrap or coat in bread.” Empanadas have their origins in Galicia (Spain) and Portugal then spread throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and South America. Variations of empanadas are found in Welsh pasties, Italian calzones, or Western meat or fruit filled turnovers.

Empanadas are an excellent choice as part of a “tapas” meal, a collection of small Spanish style savory dishes often served with drinks. When served as snacks or appetizers (perhaps with a dipping sauce) empanadas can be enjoyed by everyone.
