Birria

It’s important to really roll your Rs to pronounce this one. This traditional goat stew is a staple of the state of Jalisco. The best part — much like the best part of all Mexican food — is that there are several ways you can eat it. Spoon the rich dried roasted pepper broth with its lumps of goat meat directly into your mouth. Or use the accompanying tortilla shells, chopped onions, cilantro, salsa and a squirt of fresh lime to make your own little birria tacos. Or alternate between the two methods like a pro.
