Alambre a'lambre (help·info) is a popular Mexican dish consisting of grilled beef topped with chopped bacon, bell peppers, onions, cheese, salsa and avocado. It is usually served with freshly made corn or flour tortillas. While beef is commonly used, other kinds of meats are also used such as chicken or pork. Some recipes even substitute chopped ham or chorizo instead of the bacon. Alambres are popular in many parts of Mexico, especially Mexico City and Oaxaca, and with Mexican-American populations across the United States.
Alambres barbecued on skewers
The name Alambre literally means "wire" in Spanish. It is commonly believed that the name refers to the act of skewering the ingredients while cooking although this is not always the case.
