Among all of the varieties, tuna empanadas are one of South America's delights. They are simple to prepare, and following the steps I’m sharing here, yours will be a guaranteed success. I love their flavor and the fact that it’s a good opportunity to incorporate fish into my family's diet. I hope you enjoy them! MORE + LESS -
