Trying a new recipe

This month's "Cookbook of the Month" on Chowhound is Pati's Mexican Table by Pati Jinich. I've been trying a few new recipes and commenting on others that I've made before. Today I'm making her Picadillo Empanadas. Picadillo is a traditional ground meat filling that can be used in quesadillas, tacos, and tortas as well as in empanadas. It can also be served with rice and beans. The filling seems easy enough to make with ground beef, onion, garlic, and some seasonings. (I am omitting the raisins and olives because I don't like them and the slivered almonds because I don't have any). The dough seems a little more tricky because it contains butter AND cream cheese. I have both sitting on the counter and I'm waiting for them to come up to room temperature. Wish me luck!

Yummy! These empanadas sound and look delicious! All except for the raisins, I'd omit them also:( Olives? Maybe yes, maybe no, I'm really not sure. Enjoy your dinner and let us know how they turned out

@NJChicaa I don't like cooked raisins, except in stolen or oatmeal. Olives, I wouldn't care if I never ate one, ever again!

I've watched her show on PBS. Sometimes I find it difficult to understand her, but she makes some stuff that looks really good.
