👩‍🍳My very own version of making EMPANADA, actually another version. Filipino empanadas usually contain ground beef or chicken meat, potato, chopped onion, and raisins somewhat similar to the Cuban “picadillo” in a sweetish wheat flour dough. Some Filipinos are not partial to the sweetish flavour notes and prefer empanadas that are closer to the Hispanic versions. There are doughy baked versions, as well as flaky fried versions. Often, to lower costs, potatoes are added as a filler, and olives– relatively expensive in the Philippines—are omitted.
