My Mexican Mother-In-Law Makes The Best Cheesy Quesabirria Tacos — Here's Her Recipe

Birria de Res with Consome or "Quesabirria" is the answer to your prayers. Look, I know that as an Australian white girl my Mexican food cooking credibility is limited but this recipe has been corroborated by my Mexican Suegra (mother-in-law) so its TOTALLY legit.

I'm going to show you step-by-step how to recreate these DELICIOUS Quesabirria. Tag me @qenzie on YOUR Quesabirria!

"Everybody is going to get to know each other in the pot"

To a large pot add:

5 lb chuck pot roast

2 lb beef bone

1 whole onion

7 garlic cloves

2 bay leaves

2 tbsp chicken boullion

1 teaspoon salt


Cover with enough water to cover by 2-3 inches and bring to a boil on medium heat for 2 hours.

"Feelin hot hot hot"

De-seed your chiles and add them to a pot with enough water to cover. Boil for 20 minutes or until soft then cool.

12 Chile California (or New Mexico)

10 Chile Guajillo

3 Chile de Arbol

2 Chile Pasilla (or Ancho)

"blend blend baby"

Add your softened Chile to a blender with:

2 cups of your beef stock

5 cloves of garlic

4 bay leaves

an inch of cinnamon stick

an inch of ginger

2 tsp of toasted sesame seeds

5 whole cloves

1/2 tsp whole black pepper

1 tsp whole cumin

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp oregano

pinch of salt

Blend for a few minutes until smooth

"strain don't stain" (seriously, this stuff will stain)

Remove the fat, bone, onion, garlic, and bayleaves from your broth.

Then, strain your blended mixture into your broth and mix. Discard of left-behind Chile bits.


Let simmer on low heat for 3-5 HOURS (or longer)!

"Tom-ay-to, Tom-ah-to"

Put 4 roma tomatos in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 20 minutes and set aside to cool.

Place softened tomatos in blender with 1 cup of broth and a big pinch of salt. Blend until smooth.

"It's all coming together"

Strain tomato mixture into broth and stir well to combine. Voila - Consome!


Time to start prepping our toppings...

"Chop chop, its almost time to eat"

Grate Oaxaca cheese

Finely chop:

1 onion

1 bunch of cilantro

"Dip it, dip it real good"

Put about a cup of your consome into a shallow dish and dip to coat tortillas

"sizzle, fo shizzle"

Heat oil on a griddle or pan and gently place down tortillas - they should sizzle.

"it's gettin cheesy" 

Flip tortillas and cover with grated Oaxaca cheese!

"Oooo she's juicy"

Grab some beef from your consome and place it in the middle of what is now officially a "Quesataco"

"You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold em"

Top "Quesataco" with chopped onion and cilantro and fold in half

"It's about to get messsayyy"

Taco bout delicious!!!

Serve up your Quesabirria with a cup of consome topped with cilantro and onion on the side.

Dip the taco in the consome and shove it in your face!

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
