When I bite inside an empanada it is very crunchy, hot, and the melted cheese is UNBELIEVABLE! Mmmmmmm. I do these cheese empanadas with my mom from scratch. We make them together. This recipe really comes from Chile. My grandma gave the recipe to my mom. We also make some meat empanadas but I prefer cheese empanadas. The whole family makes them. I once went to Chile, and I ate some over there at my mom’s uncle’s house, and they were really good. Last week we ate some at my aunt’s house and we ate some at home in the same week! We mostly eat them for lunch, snack, and dinner and we mostly eat them in in winter because they are hot. For me I would eat them all the time! I can`t really say who makes the best because they are all so good!

The origins of the recipe (e.g. is it from your family’s culture or another culture)
You should pull your reader in with a strong opening sentence -
You could describe (VIVIDLY) how it tastes
You could recount a specific event
