I have seen information about empanada dough but not the empanadas themselves...and I need ultra-convenient, but still tasty...if that's possible. Couldn't find any in Trader Joes. Anyone know of a store and/or brand? Thanks!
Definitely Capone's. If you are surprised why an Italian specialty food store is making Argentine empanadas, it's because while the family is ethnically Italian the owner grew up in Argentina. They are terrific!
Not sure if it's convenient for you, but Tango in Arlington has the best empanadas I've ever tasted, and they sell them frozen if you call ahead. The beef are particularly delicious, with lovely subtle spice and raisins.
The Capone's empanadas are fantastic argentine style. Highly recommended. You can also find empadao (brazilian style) in the shops around union square in somerville, so if you hit the Union location of Capone's you can do both in one stop.
