Coastal empanadas, a delicacy between the rivers

Empanada is the gastronomic presentation of many provinces. The litoraleña empanada is a delicacy that arises between the rivers.

Empanadas are more than just a  meal , they are cultural symbols of the Argentine nation. Empanadas have been part of the great moments in the country's history. Many provinces have turned this food into an element of cultural representation.  Tucumán , Salta, Jujuy, among others, the title of “best empanada” are disputed. Today we will show the preparation of the litoraleña empanada, the delicacy of  Entre Rios .

The main feature of litoraleñas empanadas is sugary cheese. Here we give you the possibility to cook your own empanada from anywhere in the country. To begin with, we must distinguish two preparations: dough and filling.


 For the dough: 

  • 3 cups common flour
  • 1 cup leavening flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup water

 For the filling: 

  • 3 yolks
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • ½ cup milk
  • 300 g Mar del Plata cheese without shell
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. You start sifting the two flours with the salt in a bowl. With this mixture, a gap is made in the middle to add oil. On the other hand, milk and water are mixed, which will then add to the bowl mass.
  2. With the defined dough for litoralean patties, we place it on a table for kneading. First you need to knead until you get a round shape, and then go out thin slices. Kneaded with a stick will take the form of discs that will wrap the filling. The dough is ready.
  3. Now let's get the stuffing. In a saucepan on fire place a yolk, corn starch and cold milk. It should be mixed until a cream is formed. Then, pass the cream to the bowl and add Mar del Plata cheese on a grater. Add the remaining yolks and add sugar. It is seasoned and salt is added to taste. Leave the mixture in the refrigerator until it cools.
  4. On the kneaded discs, a portion of the cold filling is added, the repulgue is put together and put to fry. Once browned and drained, sprinkle them with sugar. The litoraleña empanada is ready, let's enjoy!
