The name ‘empanada’ comes from the Spanish verb ‘empanar’, meaning to wrap or coat in bread.  Empanadas resemble a pie that has been cut into pieces, which creates a portable and hearty meal for the working people. Cuban empanadas are typically filled with seasoned meats (usually ground beef or chicken) folded into dough and then baked or fried. Cubans eat empanadas at any meal, but they usually consume them with lunch or as a snack. Ammy Martinez will teach participants to make chicken empanadas with chorizo and olives.
