The Birth of Lazo

With a leap of faith and plenty of love, Christian and Karly Saber began cooking traditional Argentinian empanadas in 2012 at Rincon Argentino in Boulder, Colorado.

From opening day, Christian and Karly had to rise before dawn to make enough empanadas to fill the bellies of their customers, who regularly lined up out the door.

Rincon Argentino is now a much­-loved fixture of community culture in Boulder, offering t​raditional empanadas to their legions of fans.

Don’t live in Boulder? Cheer up!

  • Lazo Foods is now bringing these savory, delicious, handheld empanadas to you.
  • Anywhere. Anytime.
  • Christian and Karly dreamed of spreading their empanada love far and wide.
  • Naturally, they turned to family.
