These are authentic Russian piroshki filled with ground beef and onion, seasoned with dill weed and deep fried. You could also add a little cheese in the filling as you are making them. They also may be baked.
A creamy potato and white bean soup, with turmeric, cayenne pepper, curry powder and soy sauce. Instant potato flakes are added at the end of cooking, along with whole milk and half and half, for very thick and hearty soup.
This is a wonderful appetizer, a bean spread with a Mexican taste. It looks very festive with the red and green toppings, and it's easy to put together. Your guests will be asking for the recipe, so keep it handy ! The two cheeses can be substituted with one 3-cup package shredded taco cheese.
