  3. Nobody sub the empanada dough with Pillsbury crescent roll dough. The bottoms burned in the oven, the inside meat and cheese was bone dry. I couldn't find empanada dough in my town, not even at the Mexican grocery store we have in town. That's the name of the store, Mexican Grocery Store.

    1. Roll out the pastry and cut into circles approx. 20cm diameter. A side plate is an ideal size to use as a guide.
    2. Layer the vegetables and meat on top of the pastry, adding plenty of seasoning and add a knob of butter for the gravy it makes.
    3. Bring the pastry around and crimp the edges together

  7. Yum! My grandma used to make a similar style of dipping sauce with whatever she could get her hands on and if you didn't like it, there would be a chancla (one of those cheap plastic ones she got in Chinatown specifically for "motivational" purposes) on its way to you…
