Empanada Loca is a women-owned restaurant in Greenwood Heights that uses old family recipes from Colombia to deliver basically every type of savory and flavorful empanada you can imagine - they make fried and baked versions with both wheat and corn-based crusts, along with dessert empanadas. At $3.80 a crunchy pop, you can eat your way through the 30 different options, but make sure to try the spinach pie (baked wheat), pernil (fried wheat), and veggie empanada (corn) that comes with sauteed red and green peppers, zucchini, onions, and mushrooms. Also, we’re in love with their perfectly spicy cilantro jalapeno sauce and we think you will be too.
