Very good. Swapped the coriander for cilantro. Even my teenager loved it

Easy and delicious! I added red onion, green pepper, and some cheddar cheese. I also baked for 400 for about 25 min.

Very good. I left out the mushrooms and eggs due to allergies.

Very good. Next time I may add some salsa or peppers for more flavor

This recipe was surprisingly easy and fast! I left out the mushrooms and egg and also used prepared empanada spheres (Goya). The bouillon made it a but salty, but overall it came out great! Will do it again for sure!

Superb! I kind of didn't understand topping with the egg slices, so I left it out! Also, I used the empanada dough instead of the puff pastry! Makes a big difference in getting a more authentic taste. In the end though - this recipe rocked and you had better believe its on rotation!
