A Cuban restaurant in our town serves the most delectable empanadas. I've been on the hunt for a recipe I can make at home. With two 5-star reviews, I thought I'd give this one a try, even though the ingredient list seemed lacking. This is the third empanada recipe we've tried (the other two were ground beef), and unfortunately we're still on the hunt for a good one. The chicken itself was fairly flavorless. I'd prefer for it to cook in Hispanic seasonings rather than just chicken bouillion. The tomato/onion/oregano mixture tasted more like marinara sauce, so we were left with an Italian feel rather than a Hispanic feel. We added a little shredded cheese and cilantro to the last few empanadas, and that helped the flavor a little. <br/><br/>I was unable to find the masa harina at our grocery so I used Kittencal's empanada dough recipe, which was delicious. I'll use it again. (http://www.food.com/recipe/empanada-dough-151502)
Very close to being authentic empanadas ~ I give them a 5
These are exactly how my husbands mother makes them. Truly authentic and delicious. Thanks for sharing!
