Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Look, it already smells very good in Chile. As it is Holy Week, in every corner of the country the traditional empanadas are prepared, which are very famous internationally. For the filling of these, ingredients such as shellfish, onion, white wine, vegetables and cheese cannot be missed out [in order to] to leave your guests speechless. Although this is the Easter recipe and it is known that meat should not be consumed during these dates, those who don't like fish opt to eat them with beef stuffing. In my house we are in love with empanadas and we are dedicated to making them in large quantities [in order] to eat them with family and with friends. What kind of Easter would this be, if we didn't eat our delicious empanadas?

Getting that for you now...
