Tacos de Guisado, as well as the rest of the list, are based on a corn tortilla and are also stuffed. In this case, it’s the fillings that make them special and they HAVE EVERYTHING: Picadillo-type stew, chorizo ​​​​with potatoes , chicken with mole, beans, rice, sauces and more.

That is the magic of stew tacos. They are nothing more than a homemade flavor bomb. You will agree that many times we prepare beans for the family and there may be a little left over. We also prepare some tasty stews, but don’t use everything. And so the refrigerator is filled with leftovers. That is why stew tacos are a succulent way to save, recycle and eat deliciously, mixing it all up for glory.

Although it is true that some restaurants and street vendors serve the Tacos de Guisado already assembled, when we are at home with family and friends they are usually served buffet style. This means that you will need some dishes to place the fillings on the counter and thus let everyone serve themselves as they please.

A good stew taco will depend on the seasoning in each house, of the beans and stew that was left over there from previous days. Combining everything and crowning it masterfully is the key to success.
