Birria is a popular street food traditionally made with cheap cuts of meat, often goat, mutton or beef which are slow cooked in a broth flavoured with chillies, tomatoes and spices. It can either be served as a soup, or as here with the meat separated and served inside tortillas and a bowl of the warming broth on the side.

Here we’re garnishing the dish with finely shredded cabbage, a zingy pico de gallo salad, smoky chipotle salsa and cooling sour cream. For dessert we’ve got Mexico’s answer to the doughnut - deep-fried crispy aniseed treats known as bunuelos and chocolate sauce flavoured with fruity ancho chilli to dip them in.

A meal with a difference. Easy make and great fun round the table sharing with friends. Top marks for the dessert with a chilli kick sauce that actually wanted you asking for more! A kit to buy again :-)

We're happy to hear you enjoyed our product! The Ancho chilli chocolate sauce is a favourite here at The Spicery HQ!


Swapped the meat for jackfruit and beans for a veggie alternative. Chipotle salsa and pico de gallo we’re amazing. Added some homemade 3 colour corn tortillas. Ancho chilli chocolate sauce also delicious with the bunuelos for dessert
