Cinco de Mayo Recipes

Living in southern California, Cinco de Mayo was just part of our lives.  There is a rich heritage there that can be seen in the buildings and felt in the missions and other historical places.  So, when it comes to the 5th of May we would pull out our favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes and make a feast.  I had forgotten how good the Mexican food was in California but it was an eye opener when we were able to go home last January and taste the delicious food.

Khachapuir, Georgian Cheese Bread, My Senoitas Purse, by Rosevine Cottage Girls

Our Senorita’s Purse

The next dish Cinco de Mayo Recipe we call Senorita’s Purse.  This can be made with ground beef seasoned like taco meat and cheese with beans or made with chicken and cheese.  This is a fun little pocket delight.  We got the idea for these from the Khachapuri that is actually made in Georgia (the country not the state), but we gave them a little South-Western US flair and loved them so we decided to include them here. The originals would be filled with melted goat cheese but ours… full of all kinds of things.  Your imagination is the limit but do yourself a favor and try these!  Click for the recipe.
