The Empanada Shop (TES), Hermosa Beach, Calif., released what is said to be the only certified-organic and USDA-inspected frozen empanadas, available through Tony's Fine Foods, distribution experts in the Western United States and a subsidiary of United Natural Foods, Inc.(UNFI).

TES combines treasured family recipes with locally sourced non-GMO food to craft authentic Mexican empanadas. The handcrafted empanadas begin with organic meats slow-cooked in Mexican chiles, filled with organic vegetables and Mexican cheeses and baked to a golden brown.

"The Empanada Shop is excited to join Tony's Fine Foods in bringing our delicious family recipes to the American table," says chef Ruben Frias. "We slow cook our organic empanadas every day to cultivate the joy of sharing good food."
