Birria Oil Ingredients:
* 4 guallijo chiles
* 2 bay leaves
* 1 T oregano
* 1 T chicken consume
* 1 T black pepper
* 1 T garlic powder
* 1/2 T ground cloves
* 1/2 T sugar
* 1 C- 1 1/2 C oil

Corn tortillas
Taco toppings

Grind all the dry stuff in an coffee grinder, heat oil and then add all dry ingredients in oil and mix well. Set aside.

Birria Meat Instructions:
1. Heat water on high and add everything into the pot. Continue cooking on high for about an hour stirring occasionally. After about an hour remove guallijo chiles and some of the juice and put in a blender and add back into pot. The juice should be red. Taste it and add consume if needed. Continue cooking for another hour on medium semi- covered.  The meat at this point should fall apart remove it and shred it set aside. Don't throw away juices they are good to drink or dip your tacos in. You will need to take out 2 cups of the broth and put in a fry pan but not heat it. In another fry pan put the oil mixture again don't heat it.
To assemble and start making the tacos it's best if you have a griddle pan and preheat it on medium when your ready to start assembling. The process goes quick so the more hands you have the better. Start by taking your tortillas one by one dip first in broth then in oil next put on preheated griddle and put some of the meat on it and some cheese I used pepper jack cheese. As soon as you have the meat and cheese on the tortilla fold it in half with your spatula. When you see one side is toasted flip to the other side. This goes quick as I mentioned. When all are done they can be opened back up to add whatever toppings you like like diced onions, tomatoes, cilantro, etc.

Hope you liked them they are about as authentic as you can get and taste so good.
