    Wow these are also known as truchas, aren’t they? We lived on them on a lightning-short visit to La Graciosa. Correct us if we’re wrong, but they tend to be dusted with sugar for Christmas and served without for the rest of the year.

      Not heard of truchas – but you would know that better than me (with you being one of them veggie people an’ all).
      I love them – and they are so so easy to make… especially if you buy ready-made patry.
      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment GCL!

    I LOVE empanadas! My daughter and I live in a NYC neighborhood that is mostly Spanish speaking, and we occasionally go get our fill of empanadas. Thanks for the recipe- they sound great with the sweet potatoes:)
