Piratas de Arrachera with Calabacita Salsa

    Serves 6-8

In Northern Mexico, two very popular tacos that don’t get much play are the piratas and the gringas. The pirata is taco with bistec, arrachera or sirloin beef and cheese. The gringa is a taco with pastor meat and cheese, but both served with a flour tortilla. They are perfect for a weekend treat, a finger food or like they have them in Mexico, as a late-night meal after a night on the town. . For this recipe, you can use Cacique Oaxaca, Cacique Quesadilla or my favorite Cacique Asadero. Plus, add a little punch and serve with a calabacita salsa.
