The Chilean flavor

Many countries in the world make empanadas, and Chile is not the exception. I couldn't finish this very special week without showing you one of the most popular foods in Chile, specially during our independence celebrations. Empanadas are filled with cheese, seafood or, most of the time, with pino, a mixture of chopped beef, onion, chopped boiled egg, an olive and raisins. They can be baked or fried and are by far, my favorite food.

Hi Ed...mind if I call you Ed? Or is Edulabbe your name? Anyway, just wanted to say that I had an embanada yesterday...only it was probably as far away from a traditional one as it could get...it was a caramel apple (dessert) one from our local Mexican fast food place called Taco Bell (some prefer Taco HELL!) LOL! Either one makes me hungry...would LOVE to try your version! (=

Hola Edu:

Tu post fue preciso, porke justo yo acabo de terminar de comer una empanada, a lo peruano jejeje. Creo ke en Chile, Perú y Argentina se hacen las mejores empanadas. Mi última foto la tome los últimos días de Julio, aki el dia d ela independencia es el 28 de Julio.

Un abrazo desde Perú

Ame: Yes, Ed is Ok, my name is Eduardo. I love sweet empanadas too. South from Santiago there are a lot arabic and german descendants, and sweet empanadas are quite common.

Irredento: Nunca he ido a Perú, pero estoy seguro de que cuando vaya, me lo voy a comer todo!!! Los restaurants de comida peruana están muy de moda acá y me gusta mucho su comida.

Thanks a lot for all your comments. I guess that good food is always a good "Daily Photo"...
