Barbecued brisket is a staple of the culinary scene in San Antonio, but rarely do you see it served as a taco. BBQ Brisket Tacos are an alternative use for leftover brisket as opposed to chopped barbecue swimming in a sugary sauce and ladled over high carb buns. Start with your own home cooked brisket or pick up cooked brisket slices from your favorite smoke shack.
- ¼ -½ pound Brisket slices per person
- 2-3 Tortillas per person
- 1 medium Onion per every 3 servings, sliced in rings
- 2 Sweet Mini-Peppers per person, sliced lengthwise
- 1 Poblano or Jalapeño per every 3 servings, sliced lengthwise
- 1 Garlic clove per serving, minced
- Ground Cumin
- Chili Powder
- Salt & Pepper
- Sour Cream or Mexican Crema
- Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese, in shreds
- Avocado slices or Guacamole
- In a 10-12 inch skillet over medium heat, saute onion until it begins to soften. Add sweet peppers and jalapeno and continue to cook until onions are translucent. Add minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper, cook for 2 more minutes.
- While veggies are cooking, warm tortillas according to package directions. Place brisket slices in another skillet over low heat to warm.
- Once veggies, tortillas and brisket are warm, serve immediately with toppings.
Wine Pairing Guide

In general, pricing is a guideline as to the style of wine making in red wines. Less expensive reds are made to enjoy as soon as you uncork. Pour and enjoy! More expensive reds typically need 20 to 40 minutes to decant (breathe) to enjoy to their fullest.
