Brisket Tacos

Being a professional bbq competition team, I come up with creative ways to use our leftover meats. These beef brisket tacos, accompanied by my homemade salsa are amazing!

  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups chopped leftover beef brisket
  • 1 Tablespoon of JoAnn's Food Bites Homemade Salsa
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 soft shell tortillas


  • Place the brisket in an oven safe dish, dribble about a 1/4 cup of water over the brisket.  Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place in an oven heated to 350º for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, wrap your soft tortillas in foil, when brisket reaches 10 minutes, place foil packet in oven, next to brisket and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • While these are heating, shred about 3/4 cup of Monterey Jack cheese and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Shred about 1 cup of iceberg lettuce.
  • Once brisket and tortillas are warm, remove from oven.
  • Lay tortilla flat and spoon brisket, in a straight line, down the center of the tortilla.
  • Add shredded cheese.  I put the cheese next to the brisket, so it will melt slightly.
  • Add a tablespoon or so of fresh salsa, top with lettuce.  Top with a teaspoon of sour cream.
