These empanadas are an unusual and tasty game day appetizer. Onion, cumin, and fennel mixed with the turkey add so much flavor to the stuffing. We really loved dipping these into the salsa verde. The salsa verde adds a bit of tanginess to the empanadas. So yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
