If you’ve never had the pleasure of indulging in these tasty tacos, you’re in for a real treat! Tacos Borrachos, or “drunken tacos,” are a festive feast, and these aren’t your average tacos, my friends. Borrachos are marinated in a hearty beer-infused mix, giving them a unique, incredible flavor that also happens to be really simple to throw together!

One of the reasons that the Tacos Borrachos recipe is so amazing is due to its minimalistic yet flavorful approach to ingredients. You don’t need to be a gourmet chef to whip these up!

All you need are some basic taco ingredients, your favorite beer, and a bit of patience. The beer and aromatics blend together in a bold marinade that permeates the meat, infusing each bite with a rich and savory flavor. The simplicity of the preparation coupled with the complex taste result in a delicious meal that is easy to make, yet leaves a lasting impression.

How to make Tacos Borrachos on the Blackstone

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.



Put the flank steak in a large freezer baggie with the garlic, onion, cilantro, and beer. Marinate for 4 hours.



Fire up the griddle and let it preheat over high heat.



Drain the beer, pat dry the steak, and slice into super thin slices. Season with the Spanglish rub. Squeeze the lime over the meat.



Put the avocado oil down on the hot griddle and let it heat up. Put the meat down and spread it out into a thin layer.

Don’t flip it until it gets a nice brown on that one side, then give it a stir. It won’t be long after that!

Heat up the tortillas on the griddle while the meat finishes.

Remove the meat from the griddle once there’s not a lot of visible pink.



Load up those tortillas with the meat and all the topping you want. We like onions, cilantro, and cotija cheese along with plenty of our favorite hot sauces.

Tacos Borrachos FAQ

What kind of beer is best to use for this recipe?

I used a blonde ale in this dish, but any of your favorites will work. The beer does impart a lot of flavor though, so make sure you use something that isn’t too strong so it doesn’t overpower the meat. Corona or Modello would both be good options!

Can this recipe be made in advance?

Sure! It tastes best when you eat it right away after it is cooked, but if you want to make this a bit in advance it does pretty well to a light reheat.

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?

Store the leftover taco meat in a freezer baggie or any airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days max. Reheat in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.
