Jaliscan Birria --- Bunuelos with Ancho Chilli Chocolate Sauce
A traditional, spicy feast from Jalisco, Mexico...
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.
