Beef Parrillada Tacos with Linguica
Parrillada means “cookout,” and parrillada tacos feature prominently at our family barbecue gatherings. The meat is marinated in Mexican beer, lime juice, and spices, then grilled, chopped, and mixed with tender bell peppers and onions. Serve it with guacamole, chile de árbol salsa, and my Linguiça Beans (page 000) on the side. One bite and you won’t be able to stop.
These beans feature Portuguese linguiça, a delicious sausage introduced to me by our dear compadre, Frank, who is padrino (godfather) to my son. These beans are inspired both by frijoles charros, a traditional Mexican dish made with beans, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and a combination of meat, as well as by the large population of Portuguese Americans who live in San Luis Obispo, California, many of whom trace their origins to the Azores. Their food has enriched my own on many levels. These linguiça beans cook at a low temperature for a long time to create a rich, deep flavor, which is a great pairing for my Beef Parrillada Taco or Tri-Tip Tacos.
