Hand Made in Chicago Since 2010
We built this empanada meticulously: spice by spice, ingredient by ingredient, achieving a Mediterranean flavor profile that’s regionally authentic, but still melds well with our signature flakey/cheesy Cassava dough. We started by teaming up well-seasoned chicken thighs and Kalamata Olives to create a deep, savory flavor base and a hearty, meaty bite. Then, we added roasted garlic and dates, which balance each other in perfect portion. Finally, we added a bit of irresistible melty feta, a subtle salty element that makes all the flavors and textures hold hands in this transcontinental masterpiece.
