“It filled my soul with hot, buttery meat — EJ Arboleda, Winner of Hot Daddy Bod for 2015”
They say that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This is very true when it comes to pleasing my husband. Whenever he eats, his eyes light up, especially when he eats sinigang and empanada. His favorite is actually the Red Ribbon chicken empanada. Have you tried those? They are hands-down delicious. Imagine how excited he was when I told him that I got to meet Trina, who is a member of the family who owned the ORIGINAL RECIPE of that empanada!
Trina and I have been exchanging emails, but I finally met her at the Work-at-Home Expo 2015.
Trina told me that this business started three years ago as a hobby to revive the memories of an old family recipe. Trina initially made her chicken empanada for family and close friends to enjoy—until friends shared them to other friends, and soon word about this classic chicken empanada got around. Being the granddaughter and daughter of the family who started Red Ribbon, the original version of this recipe has been passed down to three generations of moms finding its way back to its humble beginnings in Trina’s home-based kitchen, where it was redeveloped and improved in preparation for its comeback.
I was so excited to try it out and had my first bite during the expo. Not knowing that it was the same Trina that contacted me via email, I hurriedly told EJ that there was this booth that served great tasting empanadas. He went and bought, as well, then later on that day, we found out that this was the business / company that contacted me via email.
With just one bite, you will love fall in love with it! We can’t stop eating it! We have each of its unique flavors at home!
We, of course, have the Classic Chicken empanada, whose taste captures your heart immediately. We also have the Asian Pork empanada. Experience the traditional asian taste with each bite of the Asian Pork empanada — a bit sweet with a hint of oriental flavor. The Italian Tuna empanada is a perfect pairing of herbs and tuna fish for the fish lover. And last, but not the least, Mexican Beef empanada is a blend of Latin American spices and a touch of mild cheese.
