 empanada    [em-pah-NAH-dah, em-pah-NAH-thah]

Empanar  is Spanish for "to bake in pastry," and these Mexican and Spanish specialties are usually single-serving turnovers with a pastry crust and savory meat-and-vegetable filling. They can also be filled with fruit and served as dessert. Empanadas range in size from the huge empanada gallega , large enough to feed an entire family, to empanaditas  — tiny, ravioli-size pastries.
