It’s a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine that’s both comforting and exciting. Let’s dive into making this delicious Birria Taco!
- 1 each 6” Corn Tortilla
- ½ ounce Birria Broth (for basting the tortilla)
- 2 ounces Vallarta Beef Birria, shredded
- 1 teaspoon Onion, diced
- 1 teaspoon Cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon Vallarta Red Salsa Taquera
- 1 each Lime wedge
- Start by brushing both sides of the corn tortilla generously with the flavorful Birria Broth. This step infuses the tortilla with the rich essence of birria.
- Place a pan on your stove and set the flame to medium heat. Allow the pan to heat up for a minute or two until it’s nice and hot.
- Carefully place the Birria Broth-basted tortilla onto the heated pan. You’ll hear a satisfying sizzle as it hits the heat. Cook the tortilla for approximately 30 seconds, or until it becomes slightly crispy and golden on the bottom.
- Gently flip the tortilla over using tongs or a spatula. Let it cook for another 30 seconds on the other side. You’re aiming for a tortilla that’s warmed through and has a touch of crunch.
- Once your tortilla is perfectly cooked, remove it from the pan and place it onto a plate. It should be slightly crispy, yet still pliable.
- In the center of the tortilla, generously place the tender shreds of Vallarta Beef Birria. This is where the magic begins!
- Sprinkle the diced onions over the birria. The sweet crunch of onions complements the savory meat beautifully.
- Next, add a touch of freshness with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. The vibrant green color and citrusy aroma will awaken your senses.
- Salsa Sensation: Spoon a generous amount of Vallarta Red Salsa Taquera over the cilantro. This zesty salsa adds a kick of spice and a burst of flavor.
- Squeeze a wedge of lime over your taco to enhance the flavors and add a delightful tang.
There you have it – your homemade Birria Taco is ready to be enjoyed! The combination of tender birria, the crunch of onions, the freshness of cilantro, and the zing of salsa, all wrapped in a warm, birria-infused tortilla, makes for a mouthwatering experience. This is a taste of Mexico that you won’t soon forget. ¡Buen provecho!
