Empanada Update

empanadas of superior quality

This photo shows two empanadas, purchased earlier today at a local bakery (la panaderia). Though you would have no particular way of knowing it from their outward appearance, the one on the right contains chicken ("pollo"), the other contains beef ("carne"). Both were delicious, definitely superior in quality relative to the generic Jumbo Foods empanadas sold in el supermercado. But again, if there is a way to infer the contents from their exterior appearance, nobody provided me with the secret decoder.

What's that you say? Isn't "pollo" classified as a type of "carne"? Not here in Argentina it isn't. There's only one kind of carne in these parts. The kind that moos.
