Alambre is a famous Mexican dish. "Alambre" literally means "wire" in spanish. There is a believing that the name comes behind the skewers used to cook its ingredients but traditional Alambre is not cooked in skewers anymore.

This dish is a combination of vegetables and meats, you always have the option of adding cheese in the Taquerias.
