Definition: Empanada

Empanada, pronounced m-pah-nah-dah
A small, single serving, half moon shaped pastry with savory filling (although sometimes sweet - have you tried the new Starbucks mango and pineapple one?). The filling can be seasoned many ways and can contain meat, seafood, and vegetables. Empanadas are typically in Spain and South America, especially Argentina where they are consumed in quantities similar to that of sandwiches in the United States. Empanadas range in size from the entire pies of Galicia to the ravioli sized empanaditas of Buenos Aires.
