Empanada is very common in Filipino dishes it is a kind of pastry that stuffed with lots of stuff such as meat commonly chicken, vegetables like carrots, potatoes, green peas, onions and garlic! Then cook it to deliciously good. It is well enjoyed and loved food! Empanada is not just common to Filipinos other countries that traditionally cook this are from south Americas, Spain is not excluded! I think in american/Italian version that's what Calzone is although they put cheeses on it! Wink.

 Anyway y'all, here's the step by steap and as easy as 123 procedure! I use half pound ground turkey instead of chicken and i tell you it is tasty and delish! The exact recipe as follows are... 1cup diced carrots, 1/2cup green peas, 1/4cup raisins, a cup of diced potato, 3tbsp veges oil, one chicken cube, medium size minced onion, minced garlic about 3 cloves, 1tsp sugar, salt and pepper to taste.

Next, Just sauteed garlic and onion until soft. Brown meat, and when it's brown add the chicken cubes plus 2 tbsp water let it simmer for 5-10 minutes until the cube dissolved and mix well. Then add the two first vegetables, carrots and potato stir and cover for 7 minutes. Lastly, add the last remaining ingredients the peas, raisins, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir and cover for 5 minutes or until everything is cooked.

Here's the finished empanada filling! Ready to stuffed in the pastry dough. But hang on i have to make the dough first, LOL! Will post the dough making shortly!

Enjoy Cooking!
