Lez also served a chunky salsa along the Mexican Potato Empanadas and Mexican Refried Beans at the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen.
Minoo brought some Green Salsa which she made during the summer when tormatilla is in abundance. She freezed the Green Salsa in small containers and defrosts one at a time when she needs it. The Green Salsa goes well with the empanadas.
We bought the raw peanuts from the grocery store on the ground floor of the Richmond Public Market. This is dirt cheap. We got them for just $4 for a bag of 3 lbs. There are Dan-D-Pak ones which are more expensive.
I think you can make at least 12-15 servings with the 3 pounds of raw peanuts. So the peanut cost is just 30-40 cents to make this serving. If you eat at S&W Pepper House, the same serving is $5.
