It may be freezing outside, but inside Fairway Market it is hot and spicy. Indeed, Fairway is now offering home style tamales and empanadas through its new Latin Table line in all 14 stores in the tri-state area.
The line debuts with three types of tamales — beef, chicken and black bean — and three empanadas –Argentine-spiced beef, spicy chicken and spinach-Portobello mushroom. Loaded with flavors, these pre-cooked items are made with the finest ingredients and are produced from traditional recipes. There are four tamales and two empanadas in a pack and each comes with a chipotle dip and an avocado-tomatillo sauce. They are available in the stores’ deli pack-out cases.
“For Fairway’s new Latin Table line we have created very delicious tamales and empanadas – two traditional and beloved foods- that are perfect as appetizers or for lunch and dinner,” said Bill Sanford, Interim CEO of Fairway Market. “Here’s another option for busy families who want to enjoy affordable, convenient foods made with top quality ingredients.”
The tamales are made with masa –a corn meal dough –then wrapped in a cornhusk and steamed. The stuffed empanadas, which are baked, have a wheat-based pastry shell. Each pack sells for $4.99. For more information go to www.fairwaymarket.com.
