    MsPia's Note:

    This recipe comes from an Argentinian grocery store booklet. As an Argentinian myself, I have never try empanadas with dipping sauce, but several times when I bake empanadas, my american friends coment that they would probably be really good with a dipping sauce. That is why when I saw this recipe I decided to post it. I have not try it yet.

      Wonderful! The last time I made this I also added kidney beans, cumin, nutmeg, and a little lemon. It is a favorite!
