Birria About this sound pronounced bi-rria  is a Mexican dish from the state of Jalisco.[1] The dish is a spicy stew, traditionally made from goat meat or mutton, but occasionally from beef or chicken.[1] The dish is often served as celebratory occasions, such as weddings and baptisms, and holidays, such as Christmas and Easter.[1] It is also reputed as a hangover remedy.[1] Preparation techniques vary, but the dish is often served with corn tortillas, onion, and lime.[1] Traditionally, the meat is marinaded in adobo spices.[1]

Restaurants or street carts that serve birria are known as birrierias and exist through Mexico, but especially in Jalisco and its capital, Guadalajara.[1] Birria is an icon of the cultural identity of the jalisciences (people of Jalisco) and especially the tapatíos (people of Guadalajara).[1] However, neighboring Mexican states have their own variations of the dish: the birria estilo Zacatecas of Zacatecas and the birria de Colima of Colima.[1]
