Every time I make Crispy Birria Tacos with Consome, it’s the most flavorful and delicious meal ever, my husband can’t stop raving about it and all of my kids happily clean their plates. You save hours of cooking time using the Instant Pot, I adapted and converted a recipe from Claudia Regalado’s YouTube channel, check out her original stove top recipe here and be sure to subscribe to her channel for awesome Mexican recipes. Birria Tacos are made from a Mexican Beef Stew (traditionally goat) – beef roast is cooked in a flavorful, spiced broth until it’s fall apart tender. Then you dip the corn tortillas quickly in the broth, stuff it with Oaxaca Cheese and shredded beef and pan fry them until they are crispy. The tacos are served with a bowl of the amazing broth to use as a dip for the tacos. It’s no wonder that foodies all over the world are going nuts over this dish!

Place shredded Oaxaca Cheese and shredded beef onto the tortilla and fold in half to form the taco. Heat a large non-stick skillet with 2 tablespoons of oil on medium high heat and fry each taco for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are crispy, add more oil each time you fry a new batch of tacos. Garnish with plenty of chopped cilantro and diced onions. Serve with lime wedges and a bowl of the Consome / Beef Broth for dipping. Enjoy!

    Begging my bestie Clarissa ( Who is 2nd generation Mexican) to help me find the spices for this dish and create this wonder, as I am dying to finally try Birria tacos. She literally mocked me in a nasally accent as she read off the list of ingredients after much resistance. I cannot wait to see her face once she tries them so I may win this battle of aholes. Happy quarantining people.

    D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Not much more needs to be said. This is the first recipe that has made me feel the absolute need to leave a like and comment. I followed the recipe almost to a T, except I ran out of cumin so I used ground coriander :(, and I I used 5 chiles de árbol instead of 3 for a tad bit more spice. I found that spice level to be perfect. Still much less spicy than tobacco hot sauce but just enough of a kick. Even with the sub, the final product came out SUPER good. AMAZING flavor and 1/4 of the time of a standard crock pot cook. Thanks for this recipe!
