Empanadas!



Argentine empanadas are famous all over the world, but if you have been to Argentina or have Argentine friends, they’re impossible to miss! I was born and raised in Argentina and as a foodie, I don't go easy on my reviews—especially not on food that I love.



Just a few months ago a friend of mine started a catering business, and empanadas are her specialty item. She offers ten different kinds of these savory pastry turnovers, so customers are treated to a varied and very flavorful experience. Last week, she brought a sampler platter to my office that included beef, chicken, and vegetarian options, and my colleagues and I got to taste some unique flavors.


A traditional empanada’s main ingredient is beef and my friend calls hers "Carne de las Pampas," or “Meat from the Plains”—coincidentally, my mom and dad greBeef empanadas.w up in La Pampa, a province known for its extensive ranches and superior-quality beef. These empanadas are filled with ground beef, onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, and a combination of spices. I really wanted to try them, but they were gone in the blink of an eye. My colleagues were licking their fingers and grinning.


The "Tex-Mex" is already a favorite among Tango Delights’ current clients since Austinites are used to Tex-Mex restaurants and spicy food. These empanadas are a twist of the traditional and come with jalapeños plus some secret "awesome!" spices.


Spinash and Butternut Squash empanadas.

My personal favorite ended up being the "Paisana," which is one of the vegetarian empanadas. The ingredients include spinach, onions, bell peppers, Parmesan cheese, more “awesome!” seasoning, and butternut squash. Just one bite had me smiling! The butternut squash in particular made this different from any other empanada I’ve tried, and it was marvelous. I’ll definitely be ordering some of these for my next party!


The other vegetarian empanada was the "Humita," and this one has corn mixed with a creamy white sauce, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and, once again, the secret-recipe seasoning. It was flavorful, rich and left me wanting more.


Additional options include traditional chicken, Cajun chicken, cheese and onion, ham and cheese, hand-chopped flank steak, and a breakfast empanada with bacon. A side salad can be ordered as well and it will come with your dressing of choice.


Tango Delights is looking to expand in the near future to a brick and mortar location, and I will definitely provide an update for when this happens. In the meantime, order some to enjoy with your family or bring them to your next potluck party—you’re sure to be the sensation of the evening if you do!
