Empanadas takes me back to my summer as a kid I spent in Puerto Rico. I ate Empanadas (also known as Pastileus) every opportunity I could get from the street vendors. Favorites were the ones stuffed with lobster, shrimp, or pizza. You can fill your empanada with almost anything you dream of Leftover meat taco And pizza to stuffing chicken and buffalo pie – you name it. Lobster Jalapeno Empanadas couldn’t be easier.

Although it’s really easy for me to get a Lobster in New York, I really like the convenience of using frozen lobster claws. Crowd Cow sells frozen lobster claw meat which is what I used here. If you’re not familiar with them, they ship the lean, hormone-free meat and sustainable seafood, straight to your door. I started using them when we were closed and kept having crab legs, steak, fish, tuna, scallops, etc. You can get $ 25 off your first order here.

The lobster filling came out so delicious, and I can enjoy this on a spicy lobster roll!
