See these? These are empanadillas.

Empanadillas are a Puerto Rican dish. (These specific ones are full of chicken and egg.) Mexicans have something similar called empanadas, something I’ve encountered repeatedly in the going-on-eight years I’ve lived in Texas.

Empanadillas beat the pants off any commercial Hot Pocket in existence. Yes, even the mozzarella and Italian sausage ones.

My favorite filling? Cheese.
