Golf, Scuba, Guitar, Dominoes, Halloween(like to do scary clowns), Empanadas (make great chicken ones. Made a bunch today even lol), and Chef jacket lol.

Wow, the sister did a great job on the cake! Impressive!

Also, those empanadas look tasty. Do you have a recipe that you would like to share?

Pour some olive oil and throw in onions. Let them sweat for a few min.
Then throw in peppers. Let them sweat also a few min.
Next mix in 1-2tsp Sofrito (optional)
Next mix in 1-2 packs of Sazon
Next sprinkle onion powder, salt, pepper to taste. I don’t use much salt or pepper myself though.
Next 1/2 tomato sauce mix in
Next throw in chicken and mix/incorporate. It will dry up a bit. This is the time to take 1/2 - 1 cup of boiled water from chicken boil and pour in.
Keep stirring and mixing
Add more onion powder, salt, pepper to taste
Keep stirring and taste until you like it. Add more Adobo if taste not quite there.

Dough part
Watch any vid on Empanada making. I do the fork method.

I have found a large serving spoon that uses the right amount per scoop for large empanada so that works for me.
Attachment 1
For frying I have a small deep fryer. I do 350-375 degrees with 1:30min on each side as they still cook after I stop frying them.

This is a great tutorial and it sounds really good. Might be a good idea to post it in the chicken forum, so it doesn't get lost in this thread.

Forgot to add use adobo for sure. Add when you add onion powder, salt and pepper to taste part. It’s not optional. Gives it part of the flavor it needs.
