April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

Salteñas, a traditional Bolivian weekend treat, are similar to empanadas, only a lot drippier. There's an art to eating them--biting the tip of the turnover invariably makes some of the savory filling seep out the other end. Practice over the terrific salteñas at Luzmila ($2)--one variety is filled with chicken, potatoes, and peas; the beef version is loaded with black olives and hard-boiled egg. They're worth the risk of a stain.
