Empanadas Fritas





I recently went to Chile to visit my lovely family before I started my latest round of cancer treatment. It was a wonderful trip where I got to reconnect and see family and friends I hadn't seen in years. A chance to reenergize and get away from the current nightmare that cancer has made my life. A chance to nurture and love and feel loved from those who inevitably will always be far away.
A chance to stuff my face with as much tasty food as I possibly could.

Case in point one of my favorites, empanadas fritas de queso. Simply, a wrapped pastry stuffed, well... with whatever you would like. My favorites are the ones that are deep fried and stuffed with cheese. Simple and soooo good.
