Bart made his smoked brisket over the weekend and I have to admit, I thought about hiding half of it to ensure that we had plenty for leftovers for the week.

I know. That’s horrible, isn’t it?

But, his smoked brisket is absolutely out of this world delicious and I knew that I wanted to make these nachos one night for a quick supper. I made them last year during football season for us to munch on as we watched the game and since then, whenever we have brisket, it is one of the questions I get before we’ve even sat down to supper. “Are we going to have nachos later?”

Don’t you just love it when your family loves leftovers just as much as they do the original meal? I know I sure do. I try to stay a bit creative with how I repurpose leftovers so that we are always eating the same ol’ same ol’ and so that it adds just a bit of variety. But sometimes, there are leftover makeover favorites that you just can’t ignore! This brisket nachos recipe is definitely one of them!

If you don’t want to smoke your brisket, you can cook it in the oven instead. Either way works just fine for these nachos!

Here’s my Brisket Nachos recipe. I hope your family asks for them as much as mine does!

  1. I love brisket. Great idea for the leftovers. Who doesn’t love nachos.

  2. We just did the same thing a few weeks back but we made soft tacos instead of nachos. I’ll have to try this next time. It’s great when something can be stretched into another dinner and everybody loves it. A rare occurrence at my house.

  3. These leftovers would be gone in my house!! They look delicious and cheesy!!

  4. We may have to cook a brisket tonight to ensure leftover for these nachos this weekend! They look delectable, and love the fresh avocado topping. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I need these nachos NOW!!

  6. I love nachos!!!! and the smoked brisket looks amazing!
