Learn how to make homemade birria sauce, also known as birria consome. It is spicy and smoky and makes the most delicious birria when combined with beef or chicken. Perfect for stew, tacos, enchiladas, and more.
Cut the dried chiles with a knife or scissors. Remove the seeds and stem. Then heat a cast iron or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chiles in a single layer in a heavy sauce pan for 3-4 minutes until fragrant and puffing up.
Add the spices to the pan (kosher salt, oregano, cumin, coriander, black pepper, cinnamon, and cloves). Stir and cook for one minute. Add the broth to the pan. Scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes until the chiles are soft and pliable.
