A popular snack in Latin America is the empanada, a pastry of folded dough with stuffing of different kinds. Even the smallest village will have a place where you can buy them. With the exception of empanadas found in bigger cities, the choices of stuffing encountered so far have often been somewhat limited to varieties with meat, chicken, cheese or tuna. Coming across the family run La Casa de las Empanadas in Cafayate, where they have twelve different delicious varieties of empanadas was therefore a real treat. Ready for a picknick in Cafayate’s beautiful surroundings!
