Who doesn’t love an empanada? The Denver area going to have more of the flakey pastries with empanada shop: My Empanadas set to open soon in Fort Collins on 1228 W Elizabeth St.
When What Now Denver talked with co-owner Morgan Chable, we were told that they hope to open by early September, but that there isn’t a set opening date yet. The empanada shop is co-owned by husband and wife duo Morgan and Azael. “Six years ago the dream-team met at the Sea Breeze cafe near the beach in the Sunset District,” according to their official website.
The two make a great duo for empanadas as “chef Azael re-crafts his mother’s old recipes— including the authentic Mayan Cochinita Pibil and Chimole — both meats slow roasted in banana leaves for hours in special spices and herbs.” And “Morgan influences from her Dutch European heritage, the flaky, buttery, amazing crusts and dough!”
We can’t wait to taste one of Morgan and Azael’s delicious flakey concoctions.You can see more of their menu here and order online.
