Cuban Medianoche Empanadas
“Inspired by my Cuban-Dominican grandmother, Livia, I’ve been making empanadas for years. She makes hers with a ground beef mixture, known as picadillo, and then fries the little babies up in oil. To lighten up her recipe, remix these by filling them with citrus-braised pork (a nod to the Cubano sandwich) and bake them. You still get a flaky, delicious crust, but you don’t get all the grease and heaviness that comes with frying.” — Angie Martinez, co-author of Healthy Latin Eating, Our Favorite Family Recipes Remixed

Empanadas
Empanadas are traced back to the northwest region of Spain, but what is fascinating about this delicious snack is that every region has their own rendition that came about centuries ago — Italy, France, Argentina, Chile, Mexico. The actual word empanada comes from the Spanish verb empañar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread using meat and cheese. In Latin America, empanadas are considered to be a very classic comfort food and the flavors, spices andvary depending on where you travel. This recipe is courtesy of Chef Anthony Lamas executive chef of Seviche.

Turn extra pizza dough into something more south-of-the-border. Baking (instead of frying) cuts calories and fat — and doesn't take too much extra time. This flaky and flavorful treat spends only 10 minutes in the oven.
