Empanadas are a stuffed puff pastry, usually baked or fried, common to many Latin American cultures. Their roots can be traced all the way back to the Spanish peninsula and its Moorish heritage.

Yes, the Arabic culture was the first to master the flaky dough known as ‘hojaldre’ that is foundational in French, Spanish, Italian and even Russian cuisines, among many others.

Each EmpaNash is ‘love-crafted’ with only the freshest and finest ingredients —using no preservatives or additives of any kind. These family recipes have been battle-tested and improved over generations. Made fresh with you in mind, ‘fryer-to-table’!
