The WMD, filled with beef chili, beans, and cheddar cheese, is the best of the three empanadas sampled, with “well-cooked” and “well-seasoned” chili that gives off “a subtle heat.” The SG, filled with queso blanco, asadero cheese, and mozzarella cheese, was “mellow, but flavorful.” The DS, filled with “slow roasted hand-pulled pork tossed in No. 5 BBQ sauce from BBQ Bus,” is “not nearly as enjoyable” as the WMD and SG. The crust is “commendable” but the pork is “a monochromatic sweet.” For the full review, see In re DC Empanadas, 1 Catt. 3 (2011).
