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



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. In the center of the tortilla, generously place the tender shreds of Vallarta Beef Birria. This is where the magic begins!
  7. Sprinkle the diced onions over the birria. The sweet crunch of onions complements the savory meat beautifully.
  8. Next, add a touch of freshness with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. The vibrant green color and citrusy aroma will awaken your senses.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
