Cost $15.00


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups leftover smoked beef brisket shredded or cut up into cubes
  • 8 corn tortillas

Suggested toppings:

  • 1/4 cup pickled onions
  • 1/3 cup diced white onion
  • 1/3 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup blender salsa
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup diced cilantro
  • 1/2 cup cheese: Shredded Mexican cheese blend or Cotija
  • 1 lime sliced


  • In a large pan over medium heat, add olive oil and brisket. Stir to warm up.
  • 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 stove, like pictured. It gets the tortillas nice and warm.
  • Load the tortilla with re-heated leftover brisket and any additional toppings. Squeeze some fresh lime over the top.
