Birria is one of my favorite dishes to make for my family. I usually prepare it as beef birria, but gave chicken birria a try recently, and it was such a hit I knew I had a winner on my hands.

Chicken birria tacos are an amazing way to enjoy the flavors of birria in the form of tasty pan-fried tacos. The powerful flavors of homemade birria sauce really shine through – all the better when you dip the tacos in the sauce!

I promise, you are going to love every bite of these quesabirria tacos. They are a total game-changer for taco night, but they’re also amazing for special occasions. It is guaranteed to be as popular as this Greek Chicken With Cucumber Feta Salad

Ingredients 

For the Birria

Onion.

Whole garlic bulb. 

Carrot.

Celery.

Bay leaves.

Guajillo chiles/chillies. These are dried Mexican chillies and can be found at Mexican grocery stores (I often buy mine online). If you can’t find Guajillos, use Ancho chiles or another dried Chile. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be used too but aren’t as authentic.

Dried oregano.

Ground cumin. 

Salt and black pepper. 

Chicken. I used boneless chicken thighs but you can make this recipe with bone-in chicken thighs/pieces or even a whole chicken.

Chicken broth/stock.

Pinch of sugar.

For the tacos:

Flour tortillas. I prefer using flour tortillas but corn tortillas can be used too.

Cheese. I used grated mozzarella cheese. Any good melting cheese like Monterey Jack, Gouda, Cheddar, etc will work.

Diced white onion. 

Fresh cilantro/coriander. 

Fresh jalapeños.

Lime wedges.

 

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN BIRRIA TACOS

Combine the chicken with all the vegetables, chiles/chillies and spices in a large Dutch oven or pot and set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat, cover with a lid and allow to simmer for 30 minutes then pull out the chillies and add to a blender with 2 cups of the broth, blend until smooth then pour back into the pot. Cook for another 45 minutes to 1 hour until the meat is tender and can be pulled apart easily. If using a whole chicken, you might need to let it braise for longer.

Pull the chicken out and shred with two forks. Pass the broth through a strainer and discard the vegetables. Reserve the broth and add a cup of stock if it’s reduced and thickened too much.

To make the tacos, dip the tortillas quickly into the broth then place in a large, nonstick frying pan or cast iron skillet set over low heat. Add the shredded chicken, cheese and finely diced onion then fold over and cook for 1-2 minutes per side until the cheese has melted. Remove and serve with the consommé/birria sauce topped with fresh cilantro/coriander and jalapeños
