This homemade empanada seasoning is not only used for spicing up Argentine meat empanada filling but many other dishes that need a flavour and spicy boost.
It is surprising how many store-bought seasonings have wheat flour added to bulk up the mixture and keep it dry. Making your own blend is easy, cheaper and gluten-free safe.
