Gather the Ingredients.
Before you begin your quesabirria creation, make sure to have all the ingredients you need. You'll need tortillas, queso fresco cheese, a pound of meat (pork or beef), red chili sauce, oil and salt. Prepare these items before you start cooking.
Heat Tortillas and Shred Cheese.
Start by heating the tortillas over medium heat. When heated, place the queso fresco cheese onto each of the tortillas and allow it to melt. Once melted, use two forks to shred the cheese into smaller pieces. This will help the cheese melt faster on your quesabirria later.
Assemble the Quesabirria.
Once your cheese is ready, you can start building your quesabirria. Begin by taking two of the tortillas with melted cheese, and topping one with the cooked beef and onions. Place the second tortilla on top of the first to create a quesabirria sandwich, pressing down so that it sticks together well. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and filling.
Fry on Medium-High Heat.
Heat up your skillet over a medium-high heat and place the quesabirria into the skillet. Fry for a few minutes on one side and then flip to the other side and fry for an additional few minutes. You want your quesabirria to be golden brown and crispy, with the cheese melted inside. Cut each sandwich in half with a sharp knife and serve hot. Enjoy!
Garnish & Serve!
To finish off your quesabirria, garnish with chopped cilantro and onions. Squirt fresh lime juice over the quesabirria for a pop of flavor and top with your favorite salsas or hot sauces. Serve immediately with warm corn or flour tortillas for added tastiness. Be sure to use toppings sparingly – a little goes a long way!
