Recipe Tip: If you’re short on time, try crab filling on your favorite crackers. Makes 15 medium or 25 small empanadas.
This recipe features a quick adaption of a Béarnaise, made with fresh tarragon and parsley, that captures the essence of the sauce and can be served hot or cold. Great for grilling!
