Digging through the freezer for something to cook for dinner this weekend, when what to my wandering eyes did appear but a 1 pound package of brisket left over from a late summer smoke. Hmm, the possibilities are endless. After pondering what to do with this new found treasure, I decided on a spin off of a favorite south of the border dish: BBQ Brisket Enchiladas!!
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound slow smoked, delicious Brisket chopped
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend
  • 1 1/2 cup Bar-B-Q Sauce (I used some of my home made sauce)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 8 corn tortillas
INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 8 x 11" or 9 x 13" baking dish with cooking spray or grease with shortening.
  • Stir together chopped brisket, 1 cup cheese, 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, and sour cream.
  • Spoon the meat mixture down the center of each tortilla, roll closed, and place each enchilada seam-side down in the prepared dish. (Place rolled enchiladas close together in the pan to keep them from unrolling.)
  • Pour about 1/2 cup more BBQ sauce over the enchiladas in the pan. Use a basting brush or spoon to spread the sauce evenly over the enchiladas.

  • Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  • Remove foil, spread remaining 1 cup of cheese over the enchiladas. Drizzle a little more BBQ sauce over the cheese. Return to oven and bake 8-10 minutes longer until cheese is melted.
  • Serve hot out of the oven.

    Okay, the picture isn't the best, but it sure tastes amazing.

Oh yeah, that is a nice spin on a classic.
I bet it tasted great.
Always see chile and tacos, nice to see some enchiladas.

I make my own corn tortillas and I've used brisket in enchiladas often but always with red sauce, never with BBQ sauce. I may try that next time. Looks tasty.

My oh my! I'm wishing I was the one who thought of this.

I've got a killer green chili enchilada sauce that I make with hatch green chilis that I can't wait to pair with my next brisket or pulled beef chuck.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh really, care to share your sauce?

For my green enchilada sauce I just use , and salsa Verde with crema fresca, and pureed chiles as desired for more flavor/heat.
Toasted and pureed Serrano chiles are my favorite.
