  4. Empanadas are great to grab on the go! The idea of buffalo chicken inside sounds tasty. I would have never thought to use preprepared buttermilk biscuits. Now that I have seen this- it opens the door to many delicious possibilities. However, the buffalo chicken would be my first choice. Have a wonderful day!

  5. Empanadas are such a great grab and go food and the filling possibilities are endless. However, I must try the buffalo chicken first! Also you have made things easier with the biscuits, sometimes we do not have all the time to make dough. Have a great day!
