  • 2 cups leftover smoked beef brisket shredded or cut up into cubes
  • 8 corn tortillas

Suggested toppings:

  • Pickled onions
  • Diced white onion
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Blender salsa
  • Sliced avocado
  • Sour cream
  • Cilantro
  • Cheese: Shredded Mexican cheese blend or Cotija
  • Lime slices


  1. Heat up your tortillas. I like to warm them up over a hot grill. But if you don’t have one handy, my next favorite method is heating them up over my gas oven, like pictured. It gets the tortillas nice and warm.

  2. Load the tortilla with re-heated leftover brisket and any additional toppings. Squeeze some fresh lime over the top.
