Empanadas are delicious hand pies that originated in the Iberian Peninsula. The recipes for empanadas were carried to the New World by Spanish and Portuguese sailors and are now a staple across Central and South America. Ours come from Coushatta, Louisiana, where one family has been perfecting these savory pastries for nearly 30 years. These 4 oz hand pies are the perfect size for a lunch or dinner entrée. Just fry or bake until they're lightly golden brown. Cooking instructions are included on each package. Each package contains 24 four-ounce frozen pies of one filling style. These empanadas are available in many delicious varieties!
