Rockwell UTT Winner #17:
THE FLYING CHEF CASA EMPANADA
118 foodies rated 5- Awesome! I would recommend it!
136 foodies rated 4- I love it!
94 foodies rated 3- We had a good time.
50 foodies rated 2- It is OK.
10 foodies rated 1- Thanks, but it could be better.
At first, I dismissed this as just another empanada. But during the Rockwell UTT, when I asked people about their top bets, they kept voting for the chocolate bacon empanada.
I finally tried it and liked the contrasting sweet and salty flavors. It was the first time I tasted this combination used in an empanada. This would be good to bring to potluck parties or give as a foodie gift this Christmas. 🙂
Congratulations to The Flying Chef’s Casa Empanada for winning in Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test!
