Empanadas Venezolanas


The other day I was craving something from home.
or maybe just Something unhealthy and delicious.
So I combined both thoughts and made empanadas.

I hadn't made them in a while, so it took a couple of tries before I got the hang of it.
But the end result was mouth watering.
I'm nice so I got you guys a recipe, though mine wasnt this one.
I made mine with a special flour to make arepas. It's just less work.
It's complicated but just come over and I'll teach you.

I will give you the filling recipe that I use and it's much easier than the one on the recipe.
It's easy and so savory, you will love it.
You could even make the filling and fill tacos with it or alongside rice.
OOH and you can even make some with just mozz cheese inside for the little ones.
SOO good.

Filling: Chicken
2 large chicken breasts, shredded
1 small onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
3 large tomatoes (2 chopped, one blended)
1/2 c water
couple of shakes of soy sauce
salt
garlic powder

Saute onion, pepper, and 2 tomatoes in olive oil until onion is translucent.
Add cooked shredded chicken and combine.
Add blended tomato, water, and soy sauce and simmer.
While it simmers, add salt and garlic to taste.
DONE!
Seriously, delish!

I ate too many.
and I don't even feel bad about it.
