Southwestern Brisket Taquitos

Pin It

Brisket Taco's have always been a favorite of mine at the finer end Mexican food restaurants. Today, I decided that instead of going out and spending money, I would try them at home but with something that would make them more special and ultimately make them original. The slight detour I took was well worth it in the end because these were a huge hit in my household. Please read on and see what I did to make these delicious to the last bite.

These two beautiful ingredients are very important to make this gourmet meal as tasty and Southwestern as possible. Trust  me, you'll be loving the Southwestern kick to these. 

Corn Tortillas
Stubb's Hickory Bourbon Bar-B-Q Sauce (Important: Stubb's highly recommend because it's one of the only BBQ Sauces on the store shelves that doesn't have High Fructose Corn Syrup and I'm a big fan of leaving that out of my diet as much as possible)
Private Selection Black Bean & Corn Salsa (found at Kroger Stores)
Canola Oil


1. Obviously you're going to need brisket for these tasty tacos but we have this covered for you. It's not always easy to do a brisket at home but we found a very pain free way to do it. Please click on over to my Off The Menu food blog to get the process.

2. Very simply mix the Stubb's Bar-B-Q Sauce & Black Bean & Corn Salsa together

3. Heat a small amount of Canola Oil in a pan over medium heat.

4. Wrap your now cooked brisket into your corn tortillas and cover them with the combined sauce. You might want to heat the corn tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds as this helps them to fry more crispy.

5. Carefully transfer your wrapped taquitos into the now well heated pan (make sure your oil doesn't get too hot) and fry both sides for approximately 2-3 minutes each.

Your done. Congrats! These are perfect for a meal or even gourmet appetizers when you have guests over for the big game. I think everybody appreciates something with a Southwestern kick every now and then. You just can't go wrong when you mix brisket and corn toritillas but when you bite into these that combination of corn salsa and sweet BBQ sauce will get your taste buds going.

Verdict: Not bad in the least, you'll be pleasantly surprised how well this meal satisfies. Recommended!
