To prep the whole dried chiles, de-seed and cut into large pieces. Cover with hot water to soften them. I put them straight into a blender to make it easy.

Add remaining ingredients to the blender and pulse carefully, then gradually increase the speed to medium-high. Blend until smooth.

Step 2

You'll have a beautiful sauce that's perfect for chuck roast or short ribs. I slow cook in a crockpot, but you can also use the oven. Pour the sauce over the meat with chopped onion and a few bay leaves.

5 hours later. Shred the beef. You can strain the sauce if you like. I serve ours 'rustic' style, so I'm ok with a few onion and chile chunks.

Tightly roll the taquitos with shredded cheese and chopped onion. You could also tuck the ends in and make little burrito pockets.

Step 5

Air fry or bake in the oven for fewer calories and fat. Lightly brush with neutral oil for a crispy exterior. I turn the taquitos over halfway through baking for even browning.

Step 6

Serve these up! Place the taquitos on a bed of shredded lettuce with sauce on the side. You can also use this recipe to make Birria Enchiladas. That sounds delicious!

Step 7

Add your favorite toppings then dip and dunk into the savoy Birria sauce.
