Sweet and Spicy Empanadas

These are more sweet than spicy and there are a few surprise ingredients that really make these little beef bites quite delicious! My husband is a "dipper" and created the tomato-based sauce that perfectly complements these non-traditional empanadas. The recipe makes 24 bite-sized appetizers, or you can make them twice as big and eat them for dinner. :)
