Tijuana-Style Beef Birria Phyllo Bombs

Tijuana-Style Beef Birria Phyllo Bombs

Flavors Used:

We’re headed down South with today's recipe of Tijuana-style beef birria phyllo bombs! Tender meat with a subtle heat in a buttery flaky phyllo crust dipped in mouthwatering juices? Sign me up. This is a wonderful recipe for a fiesta but you’ll want to do this on a night when you have some time. The longest part is cooking the meat in the instapot but outside of that, it’ll only take you about 40ish minutes to make the chili sauce, build birria phyllo bombs, and bake to perfection. We recommend serving up these birria phyllo bombs with our 4 ingredient guacamole, and our fresh homemade flour tortillas baked into tortilla chips.

  1. Without an Instant Pot, I would try cooking with a slow cooker. Would you have an estimation on length of time to cook using slow cooker? Thanks. This recipe sounds and looks amazing. Will be trying it.
