Empanada is a Spanish word.

 

A pastel is a fried turnover or a tart. 

 

If you say empanada in a region with Hispanics people might understand you.  But then again, they might not.  So, use the English word and everyone will know what you have in mind.

 

Not all turnovers are fried.  We buy baked turnovers with fruit inside them.  They are like little pies (apple, cherry, peach, strawberry, blueberry).  Four for $2.50 at Wal-Mart (or, if you want to save money you can get eight for $5.00).  [Hey!  I'm just quoting their sales pitch. It seems to work with the dumb people who didn't pay attention in math class.]
