5 Latin dishes to make with all of that leftover pumpkin (RECIPES)

Well, Halloween is now over and I admit I'm a little bit sad. One of my favorite things about the Holiday is carving pumpkins and there's one thing that I wonder every single year: what do I do with all of that leftover pumpkin?

Typically, when I throw out my pretty carved pumpkins, I end up throwing out their insides, too. That's such a waste though, isn't it? That's why this year I've decided to make one of these absolutely delicious 5 Latin dishes with all of my leftover pumpkin. From pumpkin empanadas to pumpkin flan (and more!), there's something everyone in the family will love.


1. Pumpkin Empanadas

As I learned during my conversation with the ladies behind this blog, empanadas are an absolute favorite dish to make after you've carved all of those pumpkins.
