Empanadas!! (deserve two exclamation points)

Grace: Penn, what do you want me to make with this ground beef?

Penn: The only good thing to make with ground beef is a burger.

Grace: The only good burger is on a grill.

Penn: (googlegoogleepicurioussmittenkitchen) Let's make these.

Grace: (the night before a 15,000 word report is due) Okay!

Dipped in creamy cilantro sauce. Best use of frozen shortcrust EVER.


  1. WHAT? ...no before shots? What's inside besides ground beef?

  2. Hey, Dad! You have to go to the link for the recipe - I didn't intend to blog about them until they we SO DELICIOUS.

  3. saliva running down my chin. cannot stop staring.

  4. Oh... I knew that. I see it has raisins (which I would like) but I picture Penn drawing a line through that ingredient.

  5. these look so yummy! i've been waiting for a chance to make these empanadas - http://notwithoutsalt.com/2011/05/25/spicy-empanadas-with-cilantro-cream/comment-page-1/#comment-7293 but now that i'm going vegetarian i'm gonna have to wait until fall...
