My Empanada is a family-owned business, started but my husband Juan and I. After many years of brainstorming ways to bring a taste of our culture to Virginia, two years ago we decided to focus on "Empanadas" a popular comfort food in Colombia. It is a multi-functional food in that we eat it as a snack or a meal, and it is a food staple for special events or parties.
My Empanada differs from others because we use traditional recipes passed down from our family. We use only the finest ingredients to create a flaky, mouth watering crust filled with a variety of different filling options. Our fillings include some traditional recipes from several different countries, as well as some modified American flavors that you may find in your Grandma's cookbook. Our goal is to bring a taste of culture from our kitchen to your table.
