The Salteña is a staple of Bolivian street food. Its closest food cousin is the Empanada, for which it would never be confused.
While the Salteña is small and has a simple appearance, there is a definate art to making it. There is also an art to eating one. The Salteña has the power to turn the elevensies into something spectacular.
The following is a report of the Salteña fair in Cochabamba, Bolivia in 2010. Enjoy and eat well!
