About the Dish
Even with the enormous landmass that is Latin America — from Mexico down through South America — and the enormous range of cultural influences, there’s one dish you’ll find in a lot of these countries: empanadas! This delicious baked, or fried, pastry treat is thought to originate with the Galician empanada of Spain, which dates back to the 1500s and which were traditionally made with chicken or cod fish.
