Get a high-quality beef round and cut into 2 to 3- inch squares. Marinate the squares in a blended sauce of chile guajillo, garlic, salt, and other preferred seasonings for 4 hours. Transfer to a large pot and slow boil for 3 hours. The broth is built from this cooking process and is used in making the quesa tacos. Shred the beef with two forks when fully cooked.
