Fried Apple Empanada Recipe!

Lately, I've gotten really into combining American and Latin food. Two things I love are apple pie and my mom's empanadas. So I've decided to combine the two by making fried apple empanadas, using pie crust dough and apple pie filling.  And thanks to Imusa's awesome kitchen gadgets, making these empanadas was so easy. Their jumbo empanada maker made sealing the empanadas ridiculously easy.

My family is a little different; we march to our own beat. So while all the Cuban-American families through out South Florida cook lechon for Noche Buena, my family makes a traditional Bandeja Paisa. On Thanksgiving, we pass on the dry turkey and have a Cuban feast instead. My mom is Colombian and my dad was Cuban, so it's how we have always celebrated in my house.

This is my second year partnering up with Sedanos for the Holidays and now that I have my own family, Sedanos has really become my go-to grocery store. Trying to raise a family and offer my son healthy food options can be so costly, but Sedanos’ great prices makes feeding my family healthy food a reality. As a child, my mom always shopped at Sedanos, so I have fond childhood memories of going with my mom on grocery trips and learning how to pick fresh produce. Now as I venture into motherhood, I’ll be able to share those memories with my son at Sedanos. Their affordable prices and fresh ingredients have become so vital to my family, especially as economic times get harder.
