Meat Empanada

I would like to say a special shout out to all of my calzone-eating college friends, which happens to be the grand majority of my friends. I don’t know if it’s an Amherst thing, but we have two calzone places right in the town of Amherst. That’s quite a lot of calzone per square footage.

I would say the much better equivalent of the calzone in Peru is the empanada. They can be filled with practically anything from beef to chicken to veggies. Though I’m sure it would be pretty difficult to find a bacon ranch empanada here. My favorite kind of empanada is the empanada con carne (which has ground beef in it). So flavorful and delicious!

    I never thought about Empanadas as the South American answer to Calzones, but you’re totally right! I made some recently with pumpkin and cilantro lime chutney, and they were awesome. http://dellacucinapovera.com/2012/11/06/pumpkin-empanadas-cilantro-chutney/

    Cheers!
