Barbacoa Tacos with Charred Tomato Salsa

Barbacoa Tacos w/ Charred Tomato Salsa


  • Barbacoa is fully cooked, and best warmed in a saucepan over medium low heat. This may seem fairly thick when cold, but it will thin as it warms. Alternatively, it also fares well warmed in the microwave.
  • Pinto beans are best warmed in a saucepan over medium low heat or in the microwave.
  • Tortillas are best warmed either laid out on a sheet pan and baked in a 350 degree oven for 3-7 minutes, or stacked and wrapped in a damp kitchen towel and microwaved for 1-3 minutes. The microwave method is preferable.
  • Assemble tacos with barbacoa, onions, cilantro, salsa and lime wedges. Have the pinto beans on the side.
