Tacos de Cabeza
Tacos de Cabeza

In Mexican cuisine, cabeza (lit. 'head') is the meat from a roasted head of an animal, served as taco or burrito fillings.[1][2]

Typically, the whole head is placed on a steamer or grill, and customers may ask for particular parts of the body meats they favor, such as ojo (eye), oreja (ear), cachete (cheek), lengua (tongue), or labios (lips).
