Many cultures have put a spin on the empanada and we are no different. Empanadas can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, a lean lunch, or slimmer dinner. They can be served as appetizers or snacks, but they can also easily make a full and satisfying meal. Empanadas are a very versatile dish, these delicious bundles can be prepared with so many different types of fillings, from traditional savory fillings to mouthwatering sweet fillings. There are very traditional fillings, called rellenos or condumios in Spanish, that are different from one country to another. But can these traditional versions claim to be less than 400 calories per serving? So our take, I have substituted whole-wheat pita bread for the shell and now we have a simple, quick (10 min. prep 10 min. cook time) empaña“pita”!
