Hispanic food is becoming more and more popular in the United States. While Mexican restaurants featuring foods like tamales and enchiladas have been well known in the states for many years, other foods that were not as familiar to those in the U.S. have also been more visible lately. For example, empanadas.
Empanadas are dough that is folded and stuffed with other ingredients. The filling can be made from any number of foods. There are empanadas filled with meat and vegetables, and some that are made with fruits. Empanadas have been showing up on menus recently and people are also finding recipes and making them at home.
