These were so good, my husband and I fought over the last one! I made the recipe as listed with no substitutions, but I did add a little more cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper to spice up the filling a bit. The raisins add the perfect touch of sweetness to complement the spicy meat--I would probably increase the amount of raisins next time. I don't have a deep fryer, so I fried the empanadas in about 3 inches of oil in a deep saucepan and it worked fine (be sure to use a digital thermometer to check the oil's temperature before you add the empanadas). The dough fries up so light and flaky! I would make more right now if they weren't so terrible for me :(
