These little monsters got quite the fill of candy and love!

For dinner: Empanadas!
With a little inspiration from Epicurious, we created these fun heart empanadas!
1/2 pound chorizo
1 onion, diced
1 large baking potato, cubed very small
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (or 1 can diced tomatoes for less spice)
1 tsp. cumin
3-4 small red and yellow peppers, diced
1 heaping tablespoon fresh parsley or cilantro
salt and pepper
2 boxes pie pastry (or you can make a simple pie crust recipe)
Brown chorizo and onion in a large pan. Add cubed potato and juice from tomatoes. Cook for 5 minutes or until potatoes are cooked. Stir in tomatoes, peppers, parsley, and cumin. Salt and pepper to taste.
Roll out pie pastry and cut heart shapes. Fill with meat and vegetable mixture.
Top with another heart and seal edges. Brush tops with a little olive oil.
Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. (Sorry, I forgot to watch the time--probably fifteen minutes or more?)
Serve with sour cream and salsa.
