Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mexican
Keyword: beef birria, birria, birria tacos, quesabirria, quesadilla
Servings: 8 tacos


  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg shredded cheese or 2 cups; *see notes
  • birria **see notes
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped; more to taste
  • ¼ cup onion chopped
  • limes


  • Strain birria and set consomé/birria sauce aside in large bowl.
  • Place large skillet or griddle over medium high heat.
  • Dip tortilla into sauce and place on griddle. Sprinkle shredded cheese onto entire tortilla, add shredded birria and chopped onions and cilantro to one half of the tortilla.
  • Fold tortilla in half over birria side and slightly press down with spatula.
  • With a spoon drizzle a little sauce, about ½ tbsp, onto taco and flip.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, drizzle sauce onto taco and flip one more time. Cook for 1-2 minutes just to enough for tortilla to absorb sauce. Set aside.


*You can use mozzarella but highly recommend oaxaca or chihuaha or asadero cheeses. These can be found in a lot of stores in the Mexican grocery section. These melt beautifully but any white cheese that melts easily will work. 
**For 8 tacos use my half batch of my birria recipe. Keep in mind if making a whole batch of birria for this you will need to double the ingredients for these tacos/quesabirrias.
