Empanadas are small Latin-American pastry pockets that are fried or baked. Ground pork or beef, chilies, and onions are common ingredients in savory ones. Golden Crown Panaderia in Albuquerque makes sweet ones filled with pumpkin, apple, blueberry, or cherry. In the Southwest, you’ll even come across empanadas filled with sausage or roast beef hash and eggs: a portable breakfast sandwich.
