Brisket Tacos make a delicious meal and a perfect way to use leftover brisket.


Have you ever had a brisket taco? I had one on a trip we took out west a few years ago and absolutely fell in love with them. No other taco compares since.

The full-flavor of this super simple dish makes people think you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen for the whole afternoon, when in reality, you just stick the brisket in the oven and let the oven do all the work for you. Add some fresh and delicious toppings and they’ll never guess you have a total of about 10 minutes hands-on time with this meal.

Here’s how I make it.

  1. Ohhhhh how I love Brisket tacos! They’re definitely one of my favorites. My favorite place to get them is Fuzzy’s Tacos, a family owned chain in Dallas and Plano, TX. They garnish with cilantro, radish, and queso fresco, a common mexican cheese, and crema fresca (kind of like sour cream) – perfection!
