Empanadas are savory, crescent-shaped snacks made of dough with different fillings inside.
Empanadas originated in Spain many centuries ago and since then have made their way around the globe. They are popular in many regions worldwide, including Italy, France, the Middle East, and even South America.
While Empanadas are enjoyed and loved around the world, there are many different variations to them. This is because the fillings inside them have been experimented with, and now many possible different fillings are devoured worldwide.
Here are five of the most popular empanada fillings:
Raisins and Hard-Boiled Eggs
A traditional fried empanada consists of raisin and hard-boiled egg filling. These are a healthy alternative and also a tasty way to include eggs in your diet.
Another globally popular filling is a vegetable-based one. This filling consists of only vegetables and is vegetarian friendly. This offers a blend of flavors and can serve as a side dish for your dinner party.
Creamy Corn Empanadas
In South America, particularly in Argentina and Chile, creamy corn empanadas are popular, and rightfully so. These empanadas mix corn and cheese for a creamy filling that will excite your tastebuds.
You can also experiment with their shape—they’re either made with a fold in the dough like traditional empanadas or bite-sized muffin form. These are a crowd favorite!
A classic empanada consists of beef and potatoes. The traditional empanada is consumed popularly worldwide, and you can never go wrong with it. It has a unique taste and makes for a great tea-time snack or appetizer for lunch, dinner, or even breakfast.
For those who are not big fans of beef, here comes the chicken empanada. This contains chicken pieces, along with herbs, spices, garlic, and onion, for a burst of flavor. Each bite is a tasteful delight.
