Empanadas are named after the Spanish verb 'empanar' which means to coat or wrap in bread. An empanada is a fried or baked turnover in the shape of a half-moon made with flour dough or corn flour dough. You can stuff it with any number of things. We make ours in various flavors: Beef, Chicken, cheese, Mexican chorizo, Lobster, Crab & Apple Cinnamon and enclose them in flour dough.
Our empanadas are unique with a mixture of Caribean and Mexican spices and a Southern heat. That is why we've been told they are addictive.
Empanadas are thought to have originated in Galicia, Spain, however, you will find that they are made by different cultures and go by various names. These are a few of the known names:
Meat Pies (American)
Empanadas (Latin Spanish)
Beef Patties (Jamaica)
Samosa (India), Empadinhas (Brazilian)
