Cordovan empanadas

Each province has its special empanada: Córdoba is not far behind. We tell you the recipe to make cordobese empanadas and accompany them with a fernezazo.


And yes, we Argentines are like that. Empanadas from here and there.  Empanada  tucumana,  salteña  , jujeña, creole, spicy, sweet, salty.  Whichever you want!  In Argentina we love empanadas and every family, every province, has its  secret  . You will love the secrets of cordobas empanadas and here we are going to tell you. But first, you have to know that you can also get empanadas in every corner of the city. With all kinds of filling, dough and repulgue. In every corner, neighborhoods and kiosks there is always  one that another    patties to peck   . But it is a  sine qua non  condition for being Argentine  to know how to make empanadas . That's why we tell you the recipe for this  special variety: the cordobese empanada .

In Cordoba we do empanadas like this:


 For the dough: 

  • 400 grams of flour 0000
  • 100 cc brine
  • 50 grams pork fat
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

 For the filling:

  • 200 grams of onion
  • 150 grams of potatoes
  • 100 grams of red bell
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • 20 grams of green olives
  • 30 grams of raisins
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Ground chili
  • pepper Salt


  1.  The caserite dough, caserite:  We place in a bowl the flour, melted fat and brine. We knead until we integrate all the ingredients, let the dough rest for 30 minutes and stretch until a thickness of 2 mm; cut into rings.
  2.  Special filling:  We sauté the bell with the onions and add the meat and seasonings.
  3. Cook and finally add olives, raisins and sugar.
  4. Separately place in a pot water and bring to a boil. Add chopped potatoes and leave them until they soften (approx. 7 minutes).
  5. Add to the meat mixture finely chopped potatoes and hard-boiled eggs.

 And the repulgue of the Cordovan empanadas?  The repulgue is  the one who    wants   !
