For Day of the Dead celebrations, we usually make an altar and decorate it with paper, candles, campesuchil flowers and food offerings, such as the traditional pan de muerto, sugar skulls and the favorite dishes of our deceased loved ones.
Traditional dishes like mole, tamales and stuffed chili peppers are also very popular food offerings, as well as tacos. My grandfather loved tacos! His favorites were beef tacos, which he used to make with onions, tomatoes and green chili peppers. I make that dish every year for Día de Muertos in memory of my grandfather.
Try making this dish that can be prepared for any type of celebration or on a regular day so you can enjoy its delicious flavor any day of the week.
