Beef Empanadas with Olives and Raisins

Beef Empanadas with Olives and Raisins

This past weekend was a nice and lazy weekend (there’s no other kind for us. :)).  Chris and I didn’t do a whole lot except eat, drink and relax.  We have some organizing we needed to do but never got around to it (we’re procrastinators).  We munched on some empanadas and crab dip (recipe to come this week) while sipping on wine and beer.  It was pure delight!

These empanadas were tasty for my first try.  I based the filling off of my picadillo recipe.  I am not a dough making person (yeast and kneading terrifies me!) so I used store bought pie crust instead.  These would be fabulous for entertaining.  And you can make these ahead of time too (you gotta love that!).  Have a stellar week!
