5 “Un-Conventional” Empanada Recipes

Empanadas are great Latin American pastries that are Muy Rico!

We love these heavenly, “hand-y” pastries because there are countless flavor variations and fillings that you can make with them and, they are so fun to eat! Perfect to take on-the-go and enjoy. They fit in the palm of our hands!

Some call them a version of a turn-over, hand-pie, or calzone. Whatever you call them, they’re delicious!
