Recipe by demi_quinn

This is a Filipino (spanish inspired probably) food that I think resembles a sort of turnover. Someone requested this before on the message board. I got this form the recipes given to us in HS. Dont know how long it would take and make

This is a great filipino recipe. I never use pickle relish nor garbanzo beans (my preference)but it always tasted great. For anyone who doesnt want to fry these...they are also great if baked in 350F until slightly brown.Thanks for posting!
