  • 2 lbs beef chuck, cut into chunks

  • 5 dried guajillo chilies, stemmed and seeded

  • 3 dried ancho chilies, stemmed and seeded

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 3 cups beef broth

  • Corn tortillas

  • Fresh cilantro and onion for garnish


  1. Prepare the Chilies:

  • Toast the dried guajillo and ancho chilies in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant.

  • Soak the chilies in hot water for about 15-20 minutes until softened.

  • Blend the softened chilies with garlic, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper until you have a smooth paste.

  1. Marinate the Beef:

  • Rub the chili paste all over the beef chunks and let it marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight for the best flavor.

  1. Slow Cook the Birria:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).

  • In an ovenproof pot, combine the marinated beef and chopped onion.

  • Pour beef broth over the meat and cover the pot.

  • Cook in the preheated oven for 3-4 hours or until the meat is tender and falls apart easily.

  1. Shred and Assemble:

  • Once cooked, shred the beef using two forks.

  • Warm corn tortillas and fill each with the shredded birria.

  • Top with fresh cilantro and onion.

  1. Serve with Birria Broth:

  • Ladle some of the cooking broth (consommé) into small bowls for dipping or sipping alongside your tacos.
