Tacos el Yaqui

While it’s true that there’s a taco stand on nearly every corner in Baja, Tacos El Yaqui (also known as Tacos Perrones), does not make your usual street taco. Once a locals-only spot, the taco stand is getting to be more popular with gringos but still manages to avoid drawing the Rosarito spring break tourists who mostly stick to the taco stands on the main drag in town.

The Yaqui are the indigenous peoples of Sonora, Mexico and you know what Sonora is know for – beef! The cut of the beef they use at El Yaqui is arrachera – skirt steak that’s prized for its flavor. The arrachera is cooked on a wood fire grill known as el asador before it’s chopped up and served to you fresh in a perron (taco).

These Sonoran-style tacos are made with a larger flour tortilla, and filled with the arrachera, melted cheese, pinto beans and topped off with cilantro, onions, guacamole and salsa. With the flour tortilla and the beans and cheese, they’re almost headed into burrito territory, which is a nice twist on a regular Baja taco. Served with sides of roasted jalapenos and radishes, these perrones are a serious treat. ¡Que rico!
