Well, technically, wrappings for Christmas eve dinner: discos para empanadas.
It turns out, peeling them apart requires some patience and dexterity. Luckily, I had sufficient quantities of both.
I ended up making four different fillings. One was made with veggie ground beef, cheese, and green onions, another with potatoes, onions, and mushrooms, a third with plantains, and a fourth with ricotta cheese, raisins soaked in spiced rum, and chocolate chips.
The Free-Ride family (including the Grandparents Who Lurk But Seldom Comment) judged them tasty.
Next time, however, I plan to skip getting splashed and burned by the frying oil. (It’s only been a week or so since my Thanksgiving burn completely healed.)
Thanks to Dr. Isis for advice on this meal! (It’s likely I would have sustained a burn even if I had baked them instead of frying them.)
