With roots in Jalisco and Tijuana, birria tacos were popularized in the United States, first in Los Angeles, and now everywhere! Birria is a traditional Mexican stew made from goat, beef, or lamb and slow-cooked in a broth with vinegar, herbs, and spices. It can be served as a taco, with the consommé, aka broth, served on the side to dip. Check out the places in the DFW below and explore the world of Birria!
