Tuna Empanadillas – oven baked

Oven-baked tuna empanadillas are one of my favourite recipes. Homemade dough and a tuna filling to make one of my favourite appetizers.

These empanadillas are baked in the oven so fun to make.

Seriously if you make this at home you will never buy frozen empanadillas any more in your life.

Easy to make dough and 2 fillings, one with pine nuts and the other one with tomato sauce. Both version are addicted.
