RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - If you haven’t had an empanada you are missing out!

An empanada is a baked or fried pasty made in Latin American cultures. Everyone has their own way of making empanadas but the pasty is typically corn or flour based. Again, this base all depends on the type of restaurant you are visiting and the Latin American country they are from.

Empanadas are made by folding dough over a stuffing like meat, cheese, corn or really anything you can think of.

The name comes from the Spanish verb empanar, which literally translates as “enbreaded”, or wrapped or coated in bread.
