I LOVE Charmie777's recipe for Chilean Empanadas #131090, they are fabulous! Her wonderful recipe inspired the base for this pasty recipe. We love pasties up here in Wisconsin, and this is such a tasty take on the perfect pocket-sized meal. Pasties were widely popular in Northern Michigan (Da Yooper country) because of the miners. They're hearty, the perfect size to take to work and don't make a mess.
