Everyone has that one Hispanic friend who you only use to get some free empanadas from their grandma –just kidding…but am I? The fresh taste of a warm empanada with meat and cheese oozing out is just irresistible.
The first empanadas sold in the states were available at, shockingly, Taco Bell. And although the delectable dish originated in Europe, empanadas have made their way across the world to other cultures like Argentina, where they are stuffed with fruit filling for dessert or in Jamaica where they are called “Jamaican patties.”
So no matter where you’re from, give Empanada Day the respect it deserves – call up that friend I was talking about and see what’s cookin’!
