Hello friends! This week I have felt very inspired because Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner! this is one of my favorite times of  the year cause it reminds us how greatful we should be for all the blessings and good things in our lives … Gathering with family and friends come along and lots of food in between, so I wanted to prepare this special recipe that have had in mind for a long time !

I had some friends coming over to my house so I went to a Jewel-Osco that is very closed to my house to buy all the ingredients, I especially love the products from Pillsbury ™ you can create so many dishes in a very quick and easy way. These Chicken Tinga Empanadas with a Twist of Chipotle are easy to make and require only a few ingredients, they are perfect for a snack or to complement a dish. So let´s do these days memorables with this recipe.

  3. Cut the onion, medium slices
