Empanadas are little pies or pastries that are made by folding a dough or bread around a filling. The dough is then sealed and fried or baked.
There are many different types of empanadas, but the most common ones are:
* Empanada Gallega: These empanadas originate from Galicia in northwestern Spain. They are made with a dough that is similar to pie crust and usually filled with meats, vegetables, or cheeses.
