Thought I'd share a recipe that's a hit at any and all parties I attend. In fact, I've often thought it was the only reason I AM invited to parties. Brisket Dip All measurements are guess-timates. All items other than the brisket are minced as small as possible. 1/2 lb chopped smoked brisket 1 container cream cheese (15 oz?) 1 jalapeÃ±o 1-2 cloves garlic 1/4 cup onions 1/8 to 1/4 cup black olive 1/4 to 1/2 cup mushrooms 1/2 to 3/4 cup of Joe T Garcia's Medium picante sauce Cholula hot sauce 1 tsp Paprika Lawry's seasoning salt (or similar) (to taste) Minced cilantro (to taste) Add more picante sauce if it comes out too thick. Dip with your favorite corn chip...the Frito Scoops are my favorite. Sorry the quantities are not more specific. I start out mixing the brisket, cream cheese, and the picante sauce until I achieve a desired 'dip' consistency. Then I add the other ingredients to whatever looks right.
