We’re headed right into my favorite time of the year and I’m already thinking of all the yummy foods we’ll constantly be surrounded by. It’s still nearing the 90’s on most days, but that’s not stopping me from adding a little fall flavor into our lives. I’ve already had my pumpkin spiced latte and now I’m incorporating a little Thanksgiving into our empanadas. Normally we stuff them with chicken or beef, but like I said, we’re in full fall mode right now, and I decided to add some turkey, stuffing and Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries for a Thanksgiving version empanadas.
I’ve never had empanadas this way but how can you go wrong with three fall classics like turkey, stuffing and cranberries? I was right, they were delicious! The Craisins® Dried Cranberries gave the empanadas a slight sweet zing that made them unique and that everyone immediately loved! I love buying in bulk at Sam’s Club, but since Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries aren’t available at some Sam’s Club locations, I am excited that I can still stock up at my local Walmart.
With all the yummy food we’ll be eating, it’s good to know that 1/4 cup of Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries provides 1/2 cup of fruit! This makes them perfect to snack on all on their own or they can be mixed into a salad or a trail mix. The options are endless and perfect for fall guests.
