Hey, I’ve got a treat of a recipe for you. Easy & quick, healthy and just full of flavor. A little creamy, a little spicy and probably a little different than your everyday fare. Probably unless you’re from Guatemala, where the dish Pollo en Leche de Coco – Guatemalan Chicken in Coconut Milk is from.
I’ve never been a huge fan of Chimichurri; the bold, brash taste of the ones I’ve had or recipes I’ve tried always been a bit off-putting to me. But when I was thinking about something to go with my Coffee Rubbed Steak the other day, my mind immediately seized upon Chimichurri.
My brother reminds me now and then that any dessert that isn’t chocolate is just a waste of calories. I think I may have very well proved him wrong with this Coconut Tres Leches Cake with Caramelized Bananas, and proving my brother wrong is something that happens once a decade or so…if that! Sorry, bro, you know I love you!
This is a beautiful, slightly lean dough. It makes 12 five-inch rounds of dough (you’ll need to use the scraps) about 1/8th of an inch thick. You can see how beautifully flaky this dough bakes up in Empanadas.
This works very well with four cups of filling, 1/3 of a cup in each Empanada.
Empanadas have long been a favorite indulgence, whether made with a traditional filling to some crazy wild combination, they’re just fun to eat! From the flavorful filling to the crispy, flaky pastry, they practically shout party! These Chipotle Pulled Pork Empanadas are no exception.
