Ruth Quitugua: Hi Paula, I just wanted to know if I can get the recipes for your empanada?
I love how you explain yourself and your empanada looks very delicious. I
love to try and make them... Thank you!
Chamo rrito: Last night I had ham pineapple and cheese empanadas. Also taco seasoned
beef and cheese empanadas. It was really tasty. We Chamorros need to
experiment more with our foods. We limit ourselves too much. Other
cultures that make empanadas prepare a variety. But we Chamorros seem to
make only the one type.
justin I: What size did you use
justin I: where I can get the empanada press I like it?
Paula Quinene: hi trulymae! i just sent a picture of the masa i always use to your
email...it is the "MA SE CA" bag...white with yellow and green colored
bag.....at the bottom it says "MASA: INSTANTANEA DE MAIZ INSTANT CORN MASA
FLOUR" yes, if you get the wrong one, it will not work....the same masa for
corn titiyas recipe too.
melissa b: Oh how I miss these.
Paula Quinene: Funny!
0ceanico: I tried the pineapple ham and cheese empanada. it was great. i dont put
achiote in the masa. You can add a pizza sauce if you want and it tastes
like pizza. I also made empanada with hotdogs and cheese and ate it with
mustard and it kinda tastes like a corndog.
melissa b: Do you have a recipe list for this?
Paula Quinene: @harrypottersucks12.....Empanadas are found in many Latin cultures. The
Spaniards and Mexicans were on Guam for a few hundred years. The Chamorro
empanada, however, is always orange (achote) on the inside and out, made
with a masa-harina crust and a rice filling.
tnemin0823: How do you make the dough? And whats in the filling?
OkiNaNa50ful: And u didn't even say what filling u used or what your ingredients are for
the filling.. :(
reymarie2: Hi! What is the diameter of the empanada press you used and please send me
a photo of the masa flour, thanks.
fozzit: Man, my bad for the misunderstanding. What I was saying was that all those
are versions of empanada. Empanada de calabasa, empanada de manzana are
common chamorro pastries. I'm not a historian but I recognize that most of
our Spanish food that integrated into chamorro culture originated from the
Acapulco region. We say Spanish because Mexico wasn't a country during the
time when the Marianas was partnof the Spanish east Indies
billieanne21: Can you do a pumpkin turnover? If you know how?
gtokidoki: thank you for the tips and posting this vid!!!
Paula Quinene: @0ceanico......I've read recently about other Chamorros making a variety of
empanadas. I actually just prefer the one that I grew up with...w/ the
Paula Quinene: Thank you for sharing your info!! Please excuse my ignorance. Would you
kindly share with me what specific Spanish-speaking country your are
referring to that uses the words buchi buchi, pastel calamasa, and pastel
mansana. I know that in Catalan, Spain, they use "pastis" as opposed to
"pastel." I could not find a word for "pie" in Filipino other than simply
"pie." I try to "connect-the-dots" between the foods I grew up with and
foods from other countries. THANK YOU!!!
OkiNaNa50ful: Yes you made the video to promote the cookbook. However I think u should
still have used measurements. Some people comprehend a whole lot better
with visual rather than reading..
Evette Keen: use gloves please.......just a tip...
trulymae: hey paula.. wow not even close to what i made the first time.. i like the
way you explained that .. ok im going to try this time.. my dough was not
even like yours lol.. your masa is just a regular masa right..
Gabby Deleon: I love sardine empanada:)
Edgar Retener: Oh man... I wish I was back on guam... I remember always getting an
empanada after school at my friends place. His grandma has amazing
empanadas. Now that I came here, they are so hard to find. There is a
chamorro restaurant in san diego, but it's such a hassle trying to get
there. Last time I got there, they were sold out. I guess everyone else was
trying to get their comfort food on too. Haha.
Swagmoney Yolo: omg this is part of my venezuelan culture to!
keven m: ` omg , i lalalalove GUAM and empanadas <3
