      our local shawarma place (owned by a Lebanese guy) makes cheese sambousek, which is apparently just fried empanada with cheese! it's always so fascinating to see how people from different parts of the world come up with the same thing and call it different things and UGH wow

                                                @Ogkush 253 well I can say a lot about this but I think that the easiest explanation is that in Argentina empanadas are not something you make with fancy ingredients, is food you make to cook and share with all your family... And even if it's not the best ham I can assure you it's really good and tasty. It's also a classic filling for pies. I can understand why it might sound gross to you because you don't use it that much but it's not, unless you don't like the taste of ham from the beginning 💁but people should give it a try first 👌👌

                                                @Lara animeva nothing is wrong with mozzarella and Ham it's just I've never eaten one like that and she also said that she didn't cheaper out that on ham but we've never used them on our empanadas but mozzarella cheese in it self maybe

I'm guessing these are Argentinian empanadas, which are not to be confused with Venezuelan Empanadas, or Panamanian Empanadas or Chilean Empanadas, all of which exist and are not the same as the ones depicted in this video, also not the same among each other.

                                                                                YEESSS! This is how we make empanadas here in Argentina. Greetings from Argentina, Gaby. I'm glad people from all around the world can get a little bit of our cuisine through your lessons.
                                                                                PS: Next time you should teach them how to make puff pastry (hojaldre). It's much better if you're going to deep fry your empanadas. Your dough is better for the oven.
