Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

Founded in 2007 by Carlos Escalante, Lito's sells empanadas and only empanadas in a very tiny storefront in Lincoln Park (though a second location is preparing open soon in Little Italy). Sure, there are a few stools next to a counter by the window, but the employee looked at me like I was crazy when I said I would be eating in. More

Barbecue: Mini Pulled Pork Empanadas

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 9 comments

There wasn't anything not to love here. The pulled pork was as smoky and tender as always, with the added tang and spice from the sauce, and the empanada crust was flaky and crisp. They'd be perfect for this weekend's couch marathon, AKA the Oscars. More

[Photo: Michael Nagrant] I was woken by a stomach-churning caterwaul followed by a horrid thump and the sound of drywall crumbling into the chasm between the studs behind my bed. There had been plenty of screaming matches between my... More

Cook the Book: Empanadas Mendocinas

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 4 comments

Every culture has their own version of dough stuffed with some kind of filling. Pierogi, arepas, gyoza, pelmeni, ravioli, manti, jiaozi—insert dumpling here. Large or small, boiled, baked or fried, give me any variation and I'm happy. In Argentina, the... More

Deep Fried Balls of Goodness

Chicago Michael Nagrant 1 comment

Technically, the empanadas at Lincoln Park's Lito's Empanadas are not balls, rather more like half moons. But they're definitely deep fried and good. Colombian-born Carlos Escalante and his wife, Eve, used to make the deep fried stuffed dough packets for... More

Chicken Empanada with Chorizo and Olives

Serious Eats Adam Kuban Post a comment

I had a chicken empanada for dinner last night that had been billed as spicy but was actually unbelievably bland, and so perhaps you'll understand why I felt so sorry for myself when I saw Smitten Kitchen's recipe for... More
