These Empanada Makers Maximize Time in the Kitchen

I can thank the one and only Taco Bell for my empanada addiction. I always look forward to eating a caramel apple empanada after downing two (or four) soft tacos. After some friends learned of my addiction to this dessert, I was introduced to beef turnovers.

I was very impressed with my friend's cooking skills. Not only did it taste amazing, but the empanada was shaped perfectly! Her empanada recipe remains a secret, but the secret to beautiful empanadas is using an empanada maker.
