I had never had Rutabaga, I like it and am anxious to try other Rutabaga Recipes.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas
NOTES: My biggest complaint was that these were dry. They needed a really buttery crust. I did not make the crust from scratch as called for in the recipe, I just used a store bought pre-made. I also did not think any of the poblano flavor came through. I made a sauce with sour cream, whipping cream and chipotle in adobo sauce to go with the leftovers at lunch. It didn’t help.
