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.
Next is a Taco Salad Recipe
Here is a recipe with a US flair because we made it on the 4th of July and it was so good we just included it. Taco salad is a tasty dish that is great on busy work days when the last thing you want to do is cook. You can use premade seasoned ground beef and it is a quick and delicious meal.

Taquitos are super easy and great the day after you made roast and want to use the leftovers for something different. Beef can be quickly shredded and tortillas cooked and you have this impressive meal in no time. Can be served with Mama’s Loco Beans and Rice or just as a stand-alone dish. So tasty! You won’t be sorry.
The last Cinco de Mayo recipe is our Smothered Burritos. These are a tasty way to kick up the flavor on a plain burrito. Great way to use leftover ground beef and refried beans to make a meal something really special. Click for Recipe
