Cuán agradable!

Last summer, I learned how to make empanadas at the fantastic restaurant I work at and since, have made them a bunch of times for a little snack. Recently, the chef started making these tantalizing pastries filled with goat cheese and guava for brunch. Boy Howdy! The combination of sweet guava and salty cheese all warmed up and bursting at the seams is a thing of pure beauty.

This week there were no left over empanadas for me, so I caved into the craving and made them at home. The best part is that you can make a big bowl of dough, fill them up with anything you like and bake them off  all week.

A perfect pocket pastry and a simple cerveza made for a relaxing afternoon treat.

It’s a great pair with cold beer if you are like me and can’t contain yourself, so you end up biting into the piping hot morsel, burning your mouth and start running around the kitchen for something to cool you down.

That Tecate was a real life saver.
