|My daughter with a Chilean empanada cook|
Luckily, Fairway Market
The empanadas are fine - as long as you haven't experienced the freshly made ones in Chile. We visited my daughter and had some straight from the oven, so you can't really compare But my other 2 daughters didn't go to South America, and they loved the spinach-Portobello mushroom empanadas.
Even better are the tamales, with black beans (there are also meat versions of both, but we stuck with the vegetarian). They all come with spicy chipotle dip and avocado-tomatillo sauce.
The empanadas and tamales are $4.99 each, for 2 and 4, respectively, and filling enough for a meal.
