boricua soul THE DISH A traditional beef empanada and a mojo chicken empanada, which is citrus-based, with a side of mac and cheese and collard greens. Sauces include a homemade, vinegar-based hot sauce called pique and a sweet chili sauce. $11.25 Our empanadas are not huge, but you should never bite into one and find air. Each crunch is backed with the full flavor of the tasty filling. The chicken [is] slow-cooked in a citrus-packed marinade and left in the marinade overnight before being chopped and receiving a final seasoning [and then] stuffed inside the empanada. Our beef empanadas are more traditional to Puerto Rico, with ground beef finely seasoned with sofrito, bell peppers and minced olives. When customers take a bite from our empanadas, we expect them to first notice the fresh and crunchy texture of the crust followed by the full flavor of the filling.” – Toriano Fredericks, Boricua Soul co-owner 
