Baked Beef Empanadas
Beef Empanadas are popular throughout Latin America, and Argentineans devour them with gusto at the start of any serious meal. This recipe uses won ton wrappers instead of pastry for the crust, and the empanadas are baked instead of fried. Aside from the obvious health benefits, using won ton wrappers makes assembling the empanadas quick and easy. Placing the uncooked empanadas on preheated baking sheets helps make them crisp.
