Ian's Empanadas

Ian started taking online classes with Williamsburg Academy. He is really enjoying the projects and such they they assign for him to do. They are studying Latin America in their Humanities Class and one of his assignments was to make Empanadas. 

 We decided to make both a savory and a sweet one. The savory one was filled with chicken, beans, onions, bell pepper and corn sauted with Taco seasonings. The sweet was filled with dried apples made into a pie filling. Both were very yummy. But we agreed that this wasn't a meal we would make very often. It is a lot of work to roll out the dough and prepare the fillings. Then frying them without them falling apart was difficult.
 But doing it once in awhile is alright and very YUMMY!

I love empanadas! I've never made one though. It does look a bit tricky. :)
