There’s A Perfectly Good Explanation For Woman’s Horrifying ‘Teeth Tacos’

A woman was appalled to find what she believed to be “teeth” inside her barbacoa tacos over the weekend. When she shared a photo of the unusual dish, it quickly went viral. CBS Texas affliate KYTX says Courtney Aguilar’s now private post was initially shared by more than 2,000 people–a photo of the chunk of mystery meat she discovered at Mexican restaurant El Rincon in Pflugerville, Texas. Barbacoa is cooked with different parts of the cow but mostly from the head or cheek of cattle. The vendor of the meat says what appears to have been teeth were actually “beef lips” and were fit for human consumption. Occasionally, some parts of the lips get mixed into cheek meat during the making of barbacoa. A company statement read in part, “We admit cow lips are not the most attractive food item and can resemble teeth. Unfortunately, it made its way into this customer’s dish.”
