I have been feasting on my Memorial Day left overs for days it seems, as I somehow managed to cook for a crowd of 50, when in reality there was only us 4. A smoky brisket that hubby made for us has made my weekday meal planning very easy. One evening served as tacos, the next alongside a baked potato, movie night no problem. Brisket Dip! Enjoy!
Smoky brisket swimming in a Charred tomato salsa covered in cheese, served alongside a stack of homemade tortillas chips. My kinda of movie night fare. There is a jalapeno in the mix. Feel free to remove the seeds or admit it all together. Whip up the batch of tortilla chip early, so you can serve this dip warm from the oven.

2 cups fully cooked Texas brisket, trimmed and chopped
1 cup shredded, melting cheese of your choice
4 roma tomatoes, halved and seeded

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

A terrific use of leftover brisket, the dip sounds so good!
I’m going to cry – that’s how bad I want it. LOL.
i’ll be honest–brisket isn’t my favorite way to eat beef. not even close. this, however, makes it infinitely more appealing. clever work!

I love brisket when slow cooked well, and the photo is killing me! YUM!
I continue to be in this massive blogging slump. I have hardly posted anything since February, and read even less. I miss the inspiration! I am going to snoop around her a little more. I know I have missed FAR too much!

Excellent use of leftover brisket! I’m always kind of at a loss. I mean, brisket is tasty enough on its own and I usually take the lazy way out and just eat it as a sammich the next day. This dip is genius 🙂
