Celebrating el Dia de los Muertos: empanadas, a la Mexicana

Mexican empanadas can be a dessert or breakfast item and tend to contain a variety of sweetened fillings, says Wikipedia. These include pumpkin, yams, sweet potato, and cream, as well as a wide variety of fruit fillings.

Meat, cheese, and vegetable fillings are less common in some states, but still well-known and eaten fairly regularly.

Thanks, Lana!
