Homemade Empanadas

Originally from the Spanish region of Galicia, empanadas are now viewed as a Latin-American treat. The name comes from the Spanish verb empanar, which means wrap in bread. You can make them with lots of fillings, but today we've decided to go for a classic filling, one with ground beef and tomato sauce.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
