Birria is a traditional Mexican stew made with different types of Mexican chiles, spices, meats, veggies and cheese. Traditional Birria stew is garnished with onion, cilantro and lime and served with a side of corn tacos. Birria Tacos is a recent trend across North America an this version of Birria is called “Quesabirria”, which includes Tacos dipped in Birria stew and grilled on a pan and stuffed with Veggies and cheeses ( traditionally meat is used). Birria sauce / consomme is served on the side for dipping.
My version of Birria Tacos for veggie lovers uses the main ingredients from the traditional Mexican recipes but the meats are substituted with grilled vegetables. Also, the cooking time is reduced as we don’t stew the meat, which normally takes a long time to get the desired flavor.
The key to a perfect Quesabirria / Birria Tacos is to get the authentic Mexican ingredients. You can find all the ingredients in most grocery stores across North America or order from online stores like Amazon.
Please note that my recipe doesn’t use meat and hence the dipping sauce / consomme is low in fat or floating oil ( as you see in most recipe pictures).
