Cuban Chicken Empanadas

Cuban Chicken Empanadaswith Lime Crema and Avocado

Irresistible empanadas are classic Latin American fare, and we totally get it. Filled with tender roasted chicken and juicy tomato, these insanely satisfying, repeat favorite pastry pockets are a cinch to whip up. And when they get served with a cool lime-infused crema for dipping, they’re guaranteed to disappear even faster.
