Variations on Tacos de Alambre

  • Cheesy Alambre: Top your tacos with shredded cheese or a dollop of queso fresco for a creamy touch.
  • Vegan Alambre: Use plant-based cheese alternatives and cashew sour cream to finish your tacos.
  • Spicy Alambre: Add jalapeños or even some sliced serrano peppers to each skewer if you love a kick of heat.
  • Alambre Bowls: Serve the alambre mixture over rice or quinoa for a hearty bowl option.

Tips for the Best Tacos de Alambre
