An alambre is a popular staple taquería dish in Mexico that contains meat, vegetables and melted cheese to hold it all together.
There’s a taquería in Mexico City called Las Brasas that’s famous, in part, for their large alambre selection. Located in the Plateros neighborhood since 1977, there’s more than a dozen types of alambre combinations on their menu.
My family has been obsessed with this place since we discovered it. So, I decided to make a copycat recipe at home! It’s an awesome, easy and quick weeknight dinner. You can get it together even quicker if you prep the veggies beforehand.
We also make a pork alambre at home as a red meat-free alternative to this version. That recipe is made with thinly sliced pork chops or pork tenderloin and bacon. Both versions are very filling and I sometimes double the recipe so I can take leftovers to work for lunch.
