Family Recipe Flourish in Empanadas by You

When Diana and Nick Salinas moved to Cape Coral from Miami two years ago and Nick started his plumbing job, Diana thought, “I want to do something.”

I remembered the recipes Nick had borrowed from his mother, Teresa, which he had been selling from 2008 to 2010.

When Nick transferred them to Dayana, the empanadas bai yo were born. Started in February 2020; And the global pandemic, lack of money and no food truck didn’t stop her.

Diana Salinas and her crew make seven different types of pies - regular and spicy chicken;  Regular beef, spicy ham and cheese;  Spinach, chicken and spinach.

“It’s very exciting to have a fresh start,” Diana said. “When we started, we put everything on Facebook Marketplace. We never thought it would grow so fast.”

Empanadas By Us can be found at farmers markets in Naples, Fort Myers, Punta Gorda, and Port Charlotte, as well as three markets in Cape Coral on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
