Tacos de Barbacoa Kit - 8 Pack

Inspired by the legendary Tlacolula Sunday Market in Oaxaca, this authentic goat barbacoa is made by rubbing goat with a savory guajillo chile paste and slowly roasting it inside avocado leaves. Enjoy it as they do in Oaxaca by rolling it up inside a fresh corn tortilla with chopped onions, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime and dunking it in rich & comforting broth!

Ask anyone in Los Angeles where they go for an authentic taste of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, and there’s a very good chance that they’ll point you towards Guelaguetza. Founded by husband and wife Fernando Lopez and Maria Monterrubio in 1994, this low-key Mexican restaurant is renowned as LA’s ambassador to Oaxacan cuisine, largely thanks to its iconic moles. Guelaguetza is today run by Fernando and Maria’s children, Paulina, Fernando Jr., Elizabeth, and Bricia. They’re carrying on the tradition of honoring their family’s recipes, which over the years have been hailed by everyone from the LA Times’ Jonathan Gold (who named the restaurant one of LA’s 101 most essential) to the James Beard Foundation, which named it an American Classic.
