Although I loved Dominican Republic, I couldn't wait to get back home and eat some good homemade food. I've always loved Jamaican beef patties ever since I was a kid. My mom would buy them from our neighborhood grocery store.
Here's a great combo to consider for your next batch of homemade empanadas: spicy chicken and pickled jalapenos. Don't forget to chill the dough before rolling it out as this will keep them light and flaky. So good!
