    Dawn's Note:

    These are tasty meat pies filled with a spicy sausage and potato filling. The empanada is a staple in Hispanic homes and restaurants. I love them and make a lightened version I found in a magazine.

      not sure if this reciepe is right. 1 oz. of chorizo would have been to little i used a pound but i am not sure if i did something wrong with them. the dough did not seem to turn out right for me maybe i messed it up but the filling is very spicy and good i used a pound of chorizo and a whole potato turned out alright but i think i migh have been me.
