Mama's empanadas are just one of everyone's absolute favorites of mine. I kid you not the minute I even have the thought in my head to make these it's like an alarm goes off in everyone's heads. My son's friend's whom we haven't seen in about a month will literally pop up. With seven kid's and the love they have for these I promise you there's no way out the kitchen without making at least sixty empanadas to satisfy the tummy's of them and those who pop up out of nowhere.
One of the biggest must haves in the Hispanic heritage when holiday season comes around is our all famous Puerto Rican Coquito. Translated to English means "Little Coconut". There's nothing like a cold glass on Thanksgiving day or while your decorating the tree with the family. If your a fan of coconut and rum this will be a for sure make this year for you and they make great gifts. Nobody show's up empty handed so make this delicious drink and it's sure to be the topic of the night.
