    Discos by Goya - has anyone tried them?
    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_DqzSwgi6mK...00/photo+2.JPG
    I just ran across the product in a food blog - you make empanadas with
    them and the end product can look great!

    I think they come frozen. Didn't find them at Safeway today which was
    no big surprise because they don't carry Goya products.

    The one common place that does carry some Goya products is Wal-mart.
    But, Fiesta carries a lot more of them so there is a better chance there.

    Cool stuff. I've been using fresh tortillas for that, and just steam them
    first in a steamer or nuke. They are fried, not baked. They soften up enough
    to close, but not to the extent that you can make a more decorative edge as
    shown in your second link.

    Here's what they look like:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/2312015...7624536743973/

    The texture is puffier than a traditional empanada dough. I can't say
    whether that's a function of the tortilla or the fact they are fried or both
    because I haven't tried baking them. I'll have to try these.

    Oh no. They will try to force Goya to reduce its standards.

    LOL - I thought the subject was about discotheques at first...

    I love empanadas but the dough is the biggest pain of the process -
    I'll keep an eye out for these!

    That's odd. My Safeway carries all manner of Goya products. The manager of
    your Safeway must have some personal issue with Goya.

    they are useful for all manner of filled pastries, sweet and savory.
    Endless possibilities for hors-d'oeuvres.

    We don't have Fiesta markets here in SF (at least that I know of) and
    I would only shop to Walmart if I had a gun pointed at my head... but
    I did noticed Goya (can) at a Mexican market a few weeks ago, so I
    will visit a couple of them to see if I can locate Disco's in the
    frozen section at one of them.

    I spoke with the assistant manager of that Safeway. That's the way it
    is in San Francisco. If you think it should be different, I nominate
    you to take it up with regional management.

    Why should I? *My* Safeway carries Goya products; *your* Safeway is the
    deficient one! Have you tried requesting Goya? I've actually had fairly good
    luck getting my Safeway to start carrying products I requested.

    Horsecrap! What? There's no Mexicans in SF? Try a Safeway in the
    Mission District, if there is one.

    Safeway has become the Fox News of supermarkets. I'm amazed they
    still exist. Even Draeger's and other upscale markets aren't as
    blatantly racist as Safeway.

    I would think so! Sounds like a good products to keep on hand, like
    puff pastry.

    Racist schmacist! Of course racism exists, it's a fact of life. What
    brands a store carries depends on the ethnic mix of a neighborhood.
    When the market is in a predominently lily white hood the market may
    carry a minimist Goya display and perhaps nothing at all. In a
    predominently Hispanic hood the market will likely carry every product
    Goya sells, and several other Hispanic brands as well, of which there
    are many. In hoods heavily populated with Hispanics the reverse is
    true, the US National brands (Del Monte, Libby's, etc.) will be given
    very little shelf space because the Hispanics won't buy those.... are
    they racists... of course not. Too many confuse racism for cultural
    difference.... even among Hispanics there are wide spread differences,
    especially regarding food, not much different from the regional
    disparity among the different lily white regions across all of the US,
    and the entire planet for that matter. There are major differences
    within all ethnic groups, and of all aspects, not just food.
