      These were pretty good. I'd never had them before, much less made them and they were pretty easy and very tasty. The lemon/lime marinade is great.

      Very good! I couldn't resist adding some cooked diced potatoes to the meet mixture because every empanada that I've had also had potatoes. The raisins add a unique flavor. These freeze and reheat well too.

      Pretty good! I skipped the extra egg yolk in the batter because it was already really wet. These went well with my "tapas for dinner" meal.
