Veracruz-Style Empanadas

See the RecipeMaura McEvoy

Empanadas, or turnovers, can be found throughout Mexico. In Veracruz the dough is made with masa harina (corn flour); the fillings are as varied as black beans, diced beef, queso fresco, and our favorite, Minilla, a spicy mixture with shark, olives, and capers; and they are typically served with Salsa Negra.
