According to Wikipedia: "Filipino empanadas usually contain ground beef, pork or chicken, potatoes, chopped onions, and raisins in a somewhat sweet, wheat flour bread."
However, "Empanadas in the northern part of the Ilocos are different. These usually have savoury fillings of green papaya, mung beans, and sometimes chopped Ilocano sausage (longanisa) and egg yolk. Rather than the soft, sweet dough, the dough used to enclose the filling is thin and crisp, mostly because Ilocano empanadas use rice flour coloured orange with achuete (annatto), and is deep-fried rather than baked."
The Ilocos Empanada is a delightful try!  It's not just flavorful, it's also nutritious because it's packed with not just meat and dough but also with vegetables.
#ÍMAS by @thebrokenloaves will be making its debut in the next few months! ÍMAS is the #Ilocano term describing the richness in flavor of food.

Let's Meet on Earth (@letsmeetonearth)

Democracy in Kiribati
The leaves weaved this morning are for the maneaba, the village’s large meeting house, where all decisions are made, in the presence of the elders.
FR:Le maneaba, l'imposante halle sert de lieu de rencontre et de réunion pour le village, et où les décisions sont prises en présence des anciens.

Clouds rolling in as we paddle board the lagoon at Aitutaki. This island in the @cookislands is laid back, sleepy and stunning. Leave your watch and iPhone at home. The atoll is a 45 minute flight from Rarotonga and home to a thousand blues including my pedicure! #pedicam #pedicure #shellac #cookislands #aitutaki #travel #tropical #islands #beaches #lagoon #pacificislands #polynesia #wanderlust #mapmypedi
