Tom saw a recipe for vegan picadillo empanadas in the Friday edition of our Skagit Valley Herald and wanted to try it for dinner that evening. He ran to the store and bought an avocado, fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, jalapeños and puff pastry. Then he started making them.

Not being vegan he substituted ground beef for the pecans.

Not liking olives, he skipped them.

He couldn’t find pickled jalapeños so used canned ones. Here they are all cooked up.

They were so good, especially with the avocado dip. An amazing Friday night dinner!

    I’ve bookmarked this one to try. They look delicious! Did he include the raisins? Raisins just seem… odd in this. Would they be less if I skipped them?

      Thanks! He did include the raisins and we liked them. Not sure if it is traditional or not. I think it would be fine if you skipped them though.
