Directions

  1. Place the beef tongue in a slow cooker and cover with water. Add the onion slices, garlic, and bay leaf. Season with salt. Cover and cook on Low overnight or 8 hours. Remove the tongue and shred the meat into strands.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the tomatoes and peppers in the hot oil until softened on all sides. Remove the tomatoes and peppers in a blender, keeping the oil on the heat; season with salt. Blend briefly until still slightly chunky. Cook the diced onion in the skillet until translucent; stir in the tomato mixture. Cook another 5 to 6 minutes. Build the tacos by placing shredded tongue meat into a tortilla and spooning salsa over the meat.

This recipe is simple, delicious, and easy to make. For those of you that have never made "tacos de lengua," make sure you peel off the outer layer of skin before you shred the meat!

Good recipe. My husband loved it. When I bought the tongue at the store he said, "that's just for you." But after he ate the tacos he said they were the best he's ever had. I'll tell him what they were made of when I'm done with this:) I made the tongue just as written, but just made a cold salsa like another reviewer adding lime and cilantro. I give it a 4 because although the meat was melt in your mouth good, it was missing a little something to me. Felt a lot like eating a roast beef taco. I might put a few more spices next time I cook the tongue. Yummy though

Delish. Keeper. Instead of cooking the tomatoes, peppers, and onions, I chopped them up by hand and added a handful of cilantro and a squeeze of lime to make salsa and serve with the tacos.
