Everyone loves empanadas, but when you put chorizo in them, they go to another level, as in crazy-good level. Make a batch of these chorizo empanadas and have everyone at home take a couple to school and work, or even on the go. They are so easy to enjoy and super-easy to make.
Empanadas are an incredibly versatile food. You can make them with a variety of fillings and even switch up the dough recipe. We even tried infusing the dough with beer, and the results were amazing. They also vary by country. Argentinean empanadas are different from Colombian ones, which are in turn different from the Mexican version... but they're all great in my book!
