"Yet another traditional Colombian dish that I learned to make from my mother-in-law. To eat, put a little bit of the picante on each bite. It's one of my favorite meals.**Just a note, until the elves edit this for me, it should be 1/2 lb hamburger meat, not 1 lb. Sorry about that!**"

"this was ok.. i have used another recipe with tomatoes in it that came out much better and not so dry. "
"I have always wanted to make Colombian style empanadas! I was a little worried, because I like out in podunk with no latino market or anything. I had the sazon goya, but not the adobo. But, my BIG concern was the flour. I had to use Maseca, which is different than P.A.N. I started with one cup of water, which I heated very well, then added a cup of Maseca, then a little more water, etc. until it seemed like the right consistency. I had to make them a bit smaller. They were great, very different from any other empanadas I have ever had. I think my filling was a bit dry, (maybe too much potato)but the picante on each bite took care of that. I only had these one other time from a restaurant, so I don't have a comparison. Thank you so much. I would love to make pan de bono if your MIL has that recipe!"
"Takes a bit of time, but the end results are wonderful. I doubled this recipe and unless you want to be making these all day, I don't suggest it. Luckly enough I had help! MMM good! thanks for the recipe Chef! "
