It’s Cinco de Mayo, the battle of Puebla y’all!  Why eat out? Check this recipe out, super simple and delicious.


Corn tortillas

2 C. leftover meat (chicken, pork, beef)

1/2 C. Salsa Verde

3/4 C. Cotija Cheese

1 C. leftover rice (white, yellow, Mexican)

1/4 C. Salsa



Red Onions


Sour Cream


  1. Chopped the selected meat in small bites, add the meat to a skillet, add as much cilantro as you like and salsa verde.  Make sure the stove is on medium high and move constantly. The idea is to warm up the meat with the salsa verde and the cilantro, it will add that Mexican fresh-taste.
  2. Warm up the tortillas! or Fry them! I warmed up our tortillas in the skillet or you can also use a pan.
  3. Assemble! On a plate, place a tortilla, the rice,  the meat mixture, add lettuce, tomato, red onion, the salsa, and sprinkle some Cotija cheese and cilantro.
  4. Add a dollop of sour cream or crema.

Enjoy! It’s very fresh-tasting, my family loves it, and I promise you…you cannot eat only one!
