Discos

Since first being introduced to the market back in the early eighties, these flour-based discos (dough for pastries) have been providing consumers with added benefits such as convenience and taste in a hearty fare. Our Disco (dough shells), which is our prime product are specially textured for many food operational uses. Where Spanish is a native language, you will find Empanadas (turnover pastries). Derived from discos, they have become very popular as appetizers and/or snacks, commonly served in most eateries such as cafeterias, restaurants, and catering services throughout. These discos provide several other functional uses such as stuffed pockets, twists, and other fancy pastries as well. We relate to this particular dough as our traditional dough, an Argentine favorite as well! Our disco (dough shells) are specially prepared for your favorite filled pastry whether it is meat or fruit, served as a snack or at lunch alternately, you can use just about any food/combination of foods for a filling such as ham & cheese, chicken, liver, turkey, beef, and/or sausage, the ideal change from burgers & fast-food eateries! Best of all our discos are Trans FAT Free and Contain No Hydrogenated Oils, as well as no artificial preservative or additives, simply a guilt-free food product that also suits the health-conscious market. Discos are perfect for just about every occasion, for nearly every food service establishment with both deep-frying & oven baking capabilities. These discos are available in several sizes ranging from 4” to 12” diameters and offered in various quantities for optional food handling and multi-purpose usage, all of which are prepared by carefully selecting premium, but just fine natural ingredients to bring out that homemade like taste. CUBANITA discos are delivered frozen, ready to be prepared and instantly off to cook. These discos are designed to be cooked either baked served for that pastry delight or deep fried to create a crisp, golden brown traditional Latin empanada!
