So, Taco de Harina con Carne y Salsa may sound pretty exotic to you. I know that it did to me. But, what you’re really making here is a burrito. The taco de harina translation is wheat taco which is a soft, wheat flour tortilla. The con carne y salsa is with meat and salsa. It sounds pretty fancy if you aren’t familiar with Mexican food but once you know what it means, you’ll be making it regularly because it is just that good.

Taco de Harina con Carne y Salsa Recipe

Since Marty is from Texas, he’s used to eating Mexican food several times a week. Sometimes, it’s my seafood tacos. Other times, he enjoys my refried bean dip or my easy guacamole dip. We usually make up a seasoned meat filling and then just use it in a variety of different Mexican dishes throughout the week.

To keep this totally authentic, you can make your own tortillas. I did it once and it was fun to do. We used this tortilla press to make ours because it helps them have the same uniform thickness.

If you want to make this a quick family meal, I’d recommend buying the tortillas, guacamole, and the salsa already made. If you want to try making your own homemade salsa, try these salsa recipes.

Taco de harina fillings

You can fill your taco de harina with anything you like. It should at least have meat and salsa but feel free to add rice, cheese, guacamole, refried beans, onions, and anything else you enjoy eating. You can roll it up (like I do) or fold it in half (like my husband does). It tastes amazing no matter how you make it.

If you prefer, you can always serve this in tacos de maiz (corn tacos) if you prefer. We often serve my daughter’s that way because corn tacos are gluten-free.

For dessert, enjoy a bowl of my Mexican rice pudding or a hot Mexican mochaccino. Either one is the perfect ending to your favorite Mexcian meal
