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.
