Birria tacos craze is upon us. I've seen so many posts on my social media and always wanted to try them out. I have found some highly recommended place to try them in Central Texas, but if you know a good place I should try, please let me know in the comments.

I am determined to get some of the famous Birria tacos at different places to see how their recipes vary.

In the course of my search, I ran across the origin of the Birria taco.

According to Vallarta Eats Food Tours, Birria is a traditional Mexican dish that's traditionally been made with goat meat, but can be made with beef, veal, lamb, or pork and served as either a stew or as a taco filling.

It's origins lie in the state of Jalisco, and more specifically in the town of Cocula.


I love the definition of the word "birria" they provide: “Exquisite savory dish, full of culture and tradition in gastronomic terms.”

I looked up Birria tacos near me, and I found a few in the Temple/Killeen area.

Last Tuesday, I found some food trucks in the Austin area specializing in the Birria tacos, so I might swing by one of them to see what's good.

My search will continue, because judging from the pictures I see on other's social media, they look delicious and I'm excited to try some.

If you've ever had any, let me know what you think of them, and of course let me and the My Kiss 1031 audience know where you got 'em.
