It is a pastry filled with meat, chicken and other ingredients which is deep-fried. Like Saltenas, Empanadas Tucumanas is named after a city, of Tucuman in Argentina. Tucumana is also eaten in Bolivia.

Eaten at all hours, the Tucumana is the fried version, while the Saltena is prepared in an oven. Shaped as a rugby ball they are more complex than any other item in long list of empanada names. Eaten hot, they are stuffed mainly with a mix of beef (or chicken or egg), potatoes, onions, and sometimes even olives, carrots, peas, and other vegetables. All of the ingredients are mixed in a rich and spicy broth, hence extra care should be used while eating them so that the liquids will not spill out and spoil the dress of the person eating them.
