When I went to Miami last year for BlogHer Food, I tried empanadas for the first time. I wasn’t sure if I would like them, but I figured I had to try them since I was there. I tried both chicken and pork empanadas and they tasted fantastic. I though that it would be great to make a variation on empanadas at home.
If you have read my blog before, you know that I love anything that is flavored with bacon, chicken, and ranch. I am obsessed with anything ranch and love adding ranch flavoring to all sorts of foods. Plus, you can never go wrong with adding bacon. I decided to add my favorite flavoring of chicken, bacon, and ranch to make a great version of empanadas.
These Chicken Bacon Ranch Empanadas tasted amazing and would make a great appetizer or would be great for dinner. I loved the chicken, bacon, and ranch flavoring inside of the empanadas. They reminded me of the Bacon Chicken Ranch Taquitos that I have previously made. I loved that the empanadas were easily made with ready made pie crust. The pie crust tasted great with the chicken, bacon, and ranch, and I also sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top of the pie crust. These were a big hit in my house and we can’t wait to make them again!
