Best Beef Birria Tacos W/ Consumé
- 1.5 Lbs Chuck Pot Roast
- 1 Jar of Spiced chipotle
- 10 Guajillo chilies
- 20 Cups of water (5 quarts)
- 3 Tbl spoons olive oil
- 2 Lbs chuck pot roast

Cut your chuck Roast into 4 large pieces and seasoning heavily with salt. Get a medium-large pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat until very hot. Once extremely hot, add the 4 cuts of roast into pot and brown on each side for 2 minutes each.
Cut all of your Guajillo Chiles down the middle and empty out most of the seeds in the inside. Once everything has completely browned and your seeds are out of the chilies, add water, whole yellow onion, whole red onion, and Guajillo chilies. Let simmer on medium heat for 1 hour.
Once time is up, take out the onions, and chilies and add to your blender. Blend these ingredients until you form a thick, rich red color and pour back into your pot. Once the sauce is fully incorporated, add 3 tablespoons of our Spiced Chipotle blend to your mixture. Cover and let simmer for another hour or until meat is tender and the broth has thickened.
Once the meat is finished and the sauce is thick, take out your meat and shred to your liking.
Now its time to make our tacos!
Get a skillet and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, heat on medium heat. Take one of your tortilla shells and dip it into your consumé (broth) until fully coated red and place in the skillet. (the oil will bing, bang, boom, & pop so be careful). Add your mozzarella cheese (depending on how cheesy you like your tacos), add a fork full of your meat, some of your onion/cilantro mix, and a sprinkle of more cheese. Once your cheese is melted and your tortilla is forming a crisp outside coating, flip one side of your tortilla onto the mixture. Cook on each side for 1 minute each or until each side has a very crispy coating.
Once finished making all of your tacos, enjoy with a side of consumé and extra onion/cilantro on top!
