Empanadas are stuffed pastries that are very popular in South America. These often have a slightly sweet dough--sometimes they are even sprinkled with powdered sugar, that works as a perfect contrast to the savory filling.
They can be baked or fried; typically large enough to be a meal, but can also be made into a small, appetizer-size version.
Year 9 HKK chose three different styles of empanadas:
Group 1: Argentinian Style, accompained by Pico de Gallo, a spicy Mexican tomato dip.
Group 2: Brazilian Style, acompained by a Chili sauce.
Group 3: Colombian Style, accompained by a lime.
They were all delicious. Students enjoyed them. And the HKK teacher is SO proud of them!
