BBQ Brisket Quesadillas

31 January 2020 Bookmark0
Sometimes the simplest recipes are born accidentally . That’s how these BBQ Brisket Quesadillas happened. Originally, I intended to form sandwiches with the leftover brisket meat I had within the fridge. But being the busy, overcommitted, and sometimes frazzled mom that i'm , i noticed I didn’t have any bread or mozzarella cheese. But I did have tortillas and colby jack…thus the quesadilla idea was born. it had been quite the unexpected surprise because, before I knew it, they were gone. and that i am unashamedly admitting that I ate a whole one myself.

This brisket was leftover from HoneyBaked Ham. My husband got one among those coupons for a free ham or brisket for Easter. We chose the brisket and kept it within the freezer until a couple of weeks ago once we cooked it for a special Sunday dinner. you'll also make these quesadillas with any quite leftover steak, carne asada, chicken, etc. If you actually want to undertake the brisket flavor and don’t have any leftovers, you'll find sliced versions like Jack Daniel’s sliced Beef Brisket within the grocery .

I took the leftover brisket and smothered it in my favorite BBQ sauce. Maybe you've got an area brand that’s your favorite, but I always reach for Sweet Baby Ray’s because it's delicious and cheap! And once I say smother, I mean get down in it together with your hands and confirm that brisket is dripping in sauce! Sweet Baby Ray’s has all kinds of flavors just like the 4 pack listed here.

Cook over low to medium heat therefore the BBQ brisket quesadillas don’t burn. Quesadillas have a bent to travel from nicely browned to crispy charcoal in about 3 seconds, so keep an eye fixed out. Flip it when it's browned to your preference and do an equivalent thing on the opposite side. once you can see the cheese has just begun melting, pull the quesadilla out and let it sit a couple of minutes. Cut it after it's had a couple of minutes to chill therefore the cheese doesn’t run out.
