Many people back in the States often ask us questions about the food we eat. Over the last few months we’ve begun to add pictures of our food as part of our travel experience, often squeezing foods into posts that are really about other things.
So now we happened on a better idea. Once a week this blog will be devoted to the food and drinks that we eat. We’ve done this only once so far, with hot chocolate in Colombia (word has it that we inspired a hot chocolate drinking party with that one) but now we’ll do our best to make it a regular occurrence.
Now we’re left with the question of where to begin. What to make our first food. The answer we settled on is clear as we’ve titled the post empanadas. The reason; we’ve eaten these (or something similar) in just about every single country we’ve been in since we first stepped into Mexico seven months ago.
So last night (really, last night) we made empanadas here in Argentina. While in Salta we were introduced to some of the best we’ve ever had but now that we’ve made our own, I’m slightly partial to those. As you’ll see in the video, we made baked empanadas filled with sautéed onions and ground meat. You can fill them with whatever you want, but this being Argentina home of red meat, we filled ours the traditional way. Buen Provecho!
