Beef Brisket Tacos
These beef brisket tacos are chock full of delicious flavors. The beef brisket can be cooked beforehand making this meal SUPER quick and easy! I like to use smaller tortillas with these tacos. It’s easier to eat a few smaller ones rather than a huge one that just ends up falling apart! Plus, that makes it so that I also have room on my plate for more delicious sides like these Corn Fritters or this Mexican Rice!
The flavors in these tacos have some heat from the jalapeños. But you can totally change up the toppings to be what you like! Put whatever you want on them and make them your own! I especially love topping these tacos with cojita cheese. Not only does the texture just work perfectly but the taste is subtle yet compliments everything so well. You’ll be shocked at how quickly these disappear off of your table! I would double the recipe just in case… enjoy!
