Empanadas are one of my favorite snacks. I remember that when I was young and enjoying recess I would usually buy them in the school cafeteria. The tradition stayed with me up until my college days: one empanada and a soda were my perfect snack to get the energy I needed to get through long study sessions.
As a tradition, my friends and I get together to watch soccer matches, and I'm in charge of preparing the empanadas. I'm generally inspired by my visit to Chile where they prepare the dough with puff pastry and olives. These snack are always a success, especially during those euphoric moments watching a match. One empanada after another and you never realize how much you've really had.
Fortunately, today we have products that save us time and help us recreate recipes like these. I'm going to prepare delicious.
