Empanada Dough

SpicyBoston Dec 6, 2007 07:48 AM

I'm looking to make some empanadas this weekend but wasn't too psyched about making my own dough. Does anyone know of any specialty grocery stores in the Boston area (I'm in the city but have a car and can travel) that sell this? Apologies if this topic has been discussed here before-- I searched the boards and only got posts from NYC, which didn't really help my cause!

    I'm pretty sure the Market Basket in Somerville has that and many similar products.

      They have the Goya product, La Fe is also common (Shaw's I think carries this more). Its actually worth a peek into or calling Capone's around the corner, which at one point was carrying a lightly higher quality dough.

      I know Market Basket carries them in the frozen section. Call a couple grocery stores near you, ask for the grocery manager, and see if they carry them.

        Shaws and Stop and Shop both carry Goya empanada dough in their freezer sections.

          If you are up to traveling a little, La Chapincita on Moody Street in Waltham has 2 different types of dough, either for frying or baking (in the freezer section). I usually buy the ones for baking and they are quite good. Fill them, pop them in the oven at about 350-375, and you'll have a great empanada in 15-20 minutes.

            My MIL buys some argentinean dough from a latin store in brighton. She swears by it and the family loves them Frankly, i don't touch them because the dough has lard in it.

              If you get a chance, could you get the name of the place? Thanks!
