These Mini Spicy Pork Chorizo Empanadas are some of the most scrumptious and flavorful ever!!! Beware when making these… you won’t be able to eat just one.
The summer is “officially” over but it doesn’t feel like it because the temperatures have been in their ultimate high around here. My air conditioner is definitely asking for a break already. While doing a little shopping in the super market, we saw our first pumpkin of the season and I had a flashback of all the fun we had last year in the apple/pumpkin picking. We can’t wait to do it again this year.
Having said that, I am trying to change my state of mind therefore I changed the mood of my pictures to do so. I love shooting dark and moody images and these Mini Pork Chorizo Empanadas were the perfect subject.
Yay!! You can officially say this is empanada week! This version is a little different. They are made with wonton wraps, which is very convenient because they can be ready to eat in less than 15 minutes. I also love the fact that they are baked!! Because with the holidays coming up, it is always a good a idea to control your calorie intake.
Oh! The filling… it’s made with ground pork and chorizo. As you know the chorizo has plenty of seasoning and flavor so you don’t really need to get your hands dirty. To make it colorful and more Latin I added some black beans and corn. I also added El Yucateco Chile Habanero Hot sauce.
El Yucateco hot sauces are made with fresh habanero peppers. They are packed with little more kick than the average hot sauce but with far less vinegar, so you get the true flavor of the pepper when you add this sauce to any dish.
These empanadas are perfect for your guy and his friends while they watch Sunday football. Just make sure to make enough because they are very addicting and they will disappear in no time.
I bought all the ingredients for these delicious empanadas at my local Walmart, including El Yucateco Chili Habanero Red and Green Hot Sauce.
