LA Area Pollo Campero Locations are Giving Away Free Empanadas

On July 23rd, Pollo Campero will introduce 3 new Latin American-inspired empanadas to their menu. To celebrate the launch, they will be giving away free empanadas to their customers on July 27th.

According to Vice President of Marketing, Lisken Kastalanych, "[Empanadas] are one of the most popular Latin comfort foods and we are so proud to be the first national brand to introduce them to American consumers."

These empanadas will have a Campero twist. All empanadas feature Pollo Campero’s signature blend of more than 15 Latin herbs and spices, high quality ingredients and are made fresh to order. Two of the three Campero empanadas are made with Pollo Campero’s famous chicken that is hand prepared every day.

The three choices include a Spicy Chicken empanada filled with Campero’s famous juicy chicken, green tomatillo salsa, Monterrey Jack cheese and freshly chopped cilantro; the Citrus Chicken empanada made with Campero chicken, grilled onions, tamarindo sauce and shredded Monterrey Jack cheese; and a Black Bean and Cheese empanada filled with flavorful black beans, Monterrey Jack cheese, fresh cilantro, diced onion, and a touch of smoked chipotle.

The promotion will be available in the LA area locations.
