Other popular local dishes include birria (lamb or goat stew in a spicy tomato sauce, served with corn tortillas), carne en su jugo (beef in broth, served with sides of rice, onions, and tortilla), and pozole rojo (chicken soup). Wash it down with a glass of traditional agua de Jamaica (hibiscus flower juice) or agua de tamarindo (tamarind juice).
