How to Make Empanadas

Posted on

Empanadas are stuffed pastry that is either baked or fried. The name is a very literal translation of empanar – a word that means to ‘wrap’ or ‘coat’ in bread. With origins in Spain and Portugal, empanadas have become a street food favorite – perfect for finger food at a party or a quick bite on the go.

WikiHow has a simple, step by step instructable guide on how to make empanadas that you can find by clicking here. You can vary the difficulty level by checking out the tips at the bottom of the guide. For a simplified version, watch chef Gordon Ramsay using a simple cheat of store bought pastry in this short video. He has a real emphasis on providing the right spices to add depth to the empanada’s flavor profile.
