What is the difference between paste and empanada?

Before giving you all the details about the 2024 Paste Festival, it is important to make known the difference between an empanada and this typical Mexican dish, which arrived in our country many years ago.

According to some gastronomic portals, the paste was “born” in the mines of Pachuca and Real del Monte in Hidalgo with the need for miners several decades ago to have a food high in protein, that would not get dirty when eating and that was easy to make at home.

It is noted that the paste was initially born with a filling of meat and potato, hence the name “miner’s paste”. For its part, the traditional shape of the braid on the edge of this dish was created so that the mine workers could hold their food from there to avoid dirtying it.
