Fry the onions a long time until they are soft and sweet, then add the
ground beef. When the meat is almost done add the chili, cumin, salt,
pepper, parsley, diced potatoes (small pieces), margarine, and lastly the

For 30 Salteñas:

6 cups of flour
2/3 cups margarine
3 eggs
3 tsp. sugar
a bit of salt
1 cup warm water
Place the flour in a large bowl and add the very hot butter.
Mix it immediately.
Add the eggs one by one and keep on mixing.
Dissolve the salt and sugar in the warm water, and then add
this to the mixture until everything kind of sticks together
like dough. (I usually use the whole cup)
Place the dough on a cutting board with lots of flour make dough
out of it. (stretch it, pound it, punch it etc.)
Once its dough and its kind of "dried" with the flour you have
added separate it into 30 small balls of dough.
You know the rest buddy.
gotta CRIMP EM!
Lastly, when they are done, mix some chili with hot butter and paint the
outsides of the Salteñas. Mmmmm...¡qué rico!
