More Than a Trend: Bring Birria to Your Own Kitchen

More Than a Trend: Bring Birria to Your Own Kitchen

If you spend any time on social media, you’ve surely seen photos of crispy, griddled birria tacos. Just the sight of them stops any foodie in their tracks. Melted cheese, golden brown and lacy around the edges. Tender meat, rich from hours stewed in chiles and tomatoes. And, of course, the broth, with a glistening layer of bright red fat at the top—indulgent and flavorful, for dipping and dunking so you don’t miss a morsel of flavor. And while the birria taco is a food worthy of the attention, it is the birria itself that deserves all of the credit.
