Alambre    is a popular Mexican dish consisting of grilled beef topped with chopped bacon, bell peppers, onions, cheese, salsa and avocado.[1][2] It is usually served with freshly made corn or flour tortillas.[1] The most common ingredient is beef, and other kinds of meat such as chicken or pork are also used.[3] Some recipes even substitute chopped ham or chorizo instead of the bacon.[2] Alambres are popular in many parts of Mexico, especially in Mexico City, Oaxaca, and among Mexican-American populations across the United States.


Alambres barbecued on skewers

The name Alambre literally means "wire" in Spanish.[4] It is commonly believed that the name refers to the act of skewering the ingredients while cooking although this is not always the case.[2][5]
