Food is one of thee most entertainment and having guest makes it perfect!
The above picture is called 'empandas'. I know we were to make crafty stuff but heck when  started to make the decorations. I had to make my favorite Spain food. Mmmmmmm

  • Brown ground beef in medium skillet on medium heat; drain. Add onions, peppers, ham, dressing, tomato sauce and garlic; mix well. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro.
  • Shape dough into 12 balls, using about 2 Tbsp. dough for each. Flatten each ball into 6-inch round. Spoon about 1/4 cup meat mixture onto center of each round. Moisten edges with water. Fold dough rounds in half to enclose filling; press lightly on tops to remove air pockets. Seal edges with fork.
  • Heat oil in large deep skillet to 375°F. Add empanadas, in small batches; cook 3 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from oil with slotted spoon; drain well. Cool slightly.

Hope you try it and enjoy the taste of SPAIN!!!!!!!!
