Scouting the best empanadas in Westchester Co.

I'm in the mood for a challenge and it's been a while since my last real down and dirty chowhounding food challenge (that "state of the taco in white plains" expedition I made late last year).

So I'm thinking it's time to evaluate all the empanadas that one can find in Westchester County to find the best. I'm not going to be able to do it all in a matter of three days like I did the taco one, but over the course of the next month, I'd like to try every place that sells empanadas to see if I can scout out the best.

My starting points are the places that I've already tried over the past five years. I can't remember all of them, but off hand, I'm thinking about:

* Panaderia Uruguaya in Port Chester
* Inca y Gaucho in Port Chester
* La Puebla Nuevo in White Plains
* Little Paraguay Deli in White Plains
* Los Andes Bakery in Tarrytown
* Chapines Deli in Mt. Kisco

Any others I should be thinking about? All thoughts and ideas are greatly welcomed.

Should I keep this limited to central/south american empanadas or open up to carribbean ones too? They really are a different variety, but puerto rican/domincan/cuban empanadas are great... but then where do I stop? Do I then try jamaican patties too? Alas, the choices are limitless.
