National Empanada Day [RECIPES]

An empanada is a delicious Spanish and Portuguese type of stuffed bread. Empanadas can be served hot or cold as the main course or as a side dish.

Empanadas are made by folding dough around a premade stuffing of chicken, cod, or pork loin. Other ingredients include tomatoes, garlic, and onion sauce.

Though this delectable dish originated in Europe, immigrants brought the recipe to various countries around the world where it was adopted and slightly altered to fit the tastes of that particular country. In Argentina, for example, empanadas are sometimes made with a fruit filling and served as dessert. In Jamaica, empanadas are referred to as "Jamaican patties" and are made with crispy pastry dough.

To celebrate National Empanada Day, try making your own empanadas for dinner!
