MEXICAN SALPICON RECIPE

Salpicón is a Mexican salad with shredded meat. This Mexican SALPICÓN recipe is actually a shredded beef salad that can be eaten with tostadas or crackers. The recipe can change a lot from one home to another, even from one country to another as it is a very popular recipe around Hispanics.

Mr. Don Quijote de la Mancha even makes a remark about having Salpicon for dinner “A pot of something more vacant than a ram, salpicón on most nights, duels and crushing on Saturdays, lentils on Fridays, some additional palomino on Sundays, consumed all three parts of their hacienda …”

This beef salad is perfect for people with diabetes or following a diet. It is very filling and loaded with vegetables. The dressing is made out of vinegar and olive oil and is super delicious and fresh. Perfect for summer!

What I adore about the salpicón is that you can practically add whatever you want. I vary the ingredients depending on what I have at home. Another of the great advantages of this Mexican beef salad is that it is very economically affordable so it is an idea to serve if you have a party or meeting.

TIPS FOR THE BEST SALPICON

One of my secrets for the best salpicon recipe is using the vinegar that comes in the chiles en rajas cans instead of the other vinegar. This time I did not prepare it with the chiles en Vinagre because the kids were eating it and it can turn out spicy.

If you are going to leave the meat salad for later or you are going to take it to an event, do not mix the avocado. The avocado rusts quickly and the lettuce loses water very quickly. By the time you serve it will be almost half the size and the lettuce will not be crispy.

HOW TO MAKE TOSTADAS DE SALPICÓN

The salpicón salad can be served with toast or crackers. Usually, to prepare salpicón tostadas you have to place a little avocado on a tostadaand then put the salpicón salad on top and you can add some queso fresco or cotija cheese on top.

The truth is that these shredded beef tostadas are the perfect dish to survive the summer heat. It is a fresh and delicious dish.
