Empanadas are moon-shaped pastries that come with a variety of fillings.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of empanadas. An empanada is a traditional Spanish dish that has been changed and adapted for different cultures. Basically, it's a moon-shaped pastry stuffed with a variety of ingredients. The filling varies greatly depending on where you are, but you'll often find empanadas stuffed with chorizo, cheese, or vegetables.
