This dish was first developed back in 2013 and still makes appearances on the menu due to popular demand! Picadillo is a traditional Latin American dish similar to "hash" in the United States, where ingredients are chopped finely and sauteed together. In this dish, the picadillo is stuffed into 3 golden brown empanadas and baked. Our vegetarian hash is made from quinoa, raisins, potatoes, celery, slivered almonds, and roasted carrots. Dip them in the included chimichurri sauce to get the full effect. 

Our empanadas are best served at room temperature, we suggest removing them from the fridge 5-10 minutes before eating. Dress accompanying salad and enjoy!
