Brisket Nachos!! (lots of pix)

I'm not sure which Round 2 brisket use I love more....brisket chili or brisket nachos.  :)  This is from the Whole Packer Beef Brisket that I made overnight this past Sunday...

I started by tossing in a bunch of cubed brisket from the flat...then added in some Enchilada sauce and I let that get happy for awhile.

Then layered in some Tostitos, Black Beans, the Brisket, Shredded Monteray Jack Cheese and Homemade Pico de Gallo.  I always use Steven Raichlen's recipe for Pico de Gallo.  It's killer stuff.  I can eat it with a spoon.  ;)

Then added another layer of the same thing, minus the Pico de Gallo.

Then put them under the broiler, set at low, giving them some distance from the burner, as to allow the cheese to heat through without the chips burning.

Then added some extra Pico de Gallo and Sour Cream when they were finished.  My lovely wife allowed me to eat in front of the couch and watch the news.  :)

These were faaaantastic!  :D

I've made brisket nachos before with Steven Raichlen's Pico de Gallo, but I got the idea of adding the Enchilada Sauce from the Pioneer Woman...here is her recipe for Cowboy Nachos...

    You're killing me again with the nachos in round 2. I'm working myself up to a brisket cook. Looked over a few recipes tonight from the Smoke & Spice cookbook. Someday.

    Go for it, don't be shy. Even a simple 50/50 salt-pepper rub is enough. The egg gods command it!

    Looks great, @Dyal_SC. I could eat a platter full of that right now. Hope you used this brand (and flavor) enchilada sauce. its the only one worth using if you are going from a can.

    Thanks a lot, ladies and gents!  @Griffin, I can't remember which Enchilada Sauce I used.  My wife picked it up....I do remember it not being the "Tex Mex" flavor in your pic, but can't remember if it was that brand.  Seems like it had a Spanish name though.  Even if someone repeated it, I couldn't remember it.  It had a dark red color though.  It also wasn't too strong of a flavor, which we liked since it didn't take away from the taste of the brisket.  :)

    For y'all that are kinda hesitant about giving a whole packer brisket a go...don't be!!  There's nothing to lose.  It was $37 for the entire brisket, and it's going to give many, MANY meals to my wife and me.  It's almost impossible these days to go out for ONE meal for two people for under $40.  It's not hard either....It's just temperature control...no biggie.  ;)
