Description

These meaty, stick-to-your-ribs nachos are perfect for leftover brisket, and they’re so much more flavorful than ones using taco-seasoned hamburger.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Pioneer Woman's Pinto Beans From "beans And Cornbread" Recipe On Tasty Kitchen
  • Ground Black Pepper To Taste
  • Tabasco Sauce, To Taste
  • Minced Garlic (to Desired Flavor)
  • Jarred Or Fresh Jalapenos (optional)
  • Canola Oil
  • 2 cups Pioneer Woman's Beef Brisket From "beef Brisket" Recipe
  • Pan Drippings From Brisket Or Beef Broth (optional)
  • 1 can Mexican Red Sauce Or Enchilada Sauce (Enough To Moisten Beef)
  • 2 cups Pioneer Woman's Pico De Gallo From "pico De Gallo And Guacamole" Recipe
  • Tortilla Chips
  • 2 cups Grated Monterey Jack Cheese (or To Taste)
  • Guacamole And Sour Cream (optional)

Preparation

Heat up pinto beans and doctor them to your desired “temperature,” adding the ground black pepper, Tabasco sauce, minced garlic and jalapenos. Make it as spicy or mild as you like.

Next, in a very hot skillet, add a bit of canola oil and the shredded brisket. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and then flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.

Preheat your oven’s broiler.

Next pour some of the red sauce over the meat to make it nice and moist. If you have them, also add a bit of pan drippings from the brisket cooking process or a bit of beef broth, again just enough to bring the meat to a nice moist consistency. Stir to combine. Turn off heat.

Grate your Monterey Jack (however much you want).

TO ASSEMBLE:

In a heat proof dish layer chips, beans, brisket, cheese, and pico de gallo. Repeat layers but leave off the second layer of pico de gallo until after the dish is cooked.

Place on the middle or bottom rack of your oven and broil until cheese is melted. Watch closely. When cheese is melted, remove from oven and sprinkle a generous amount of pico de gallo over the top.

Inhale, exhale, and then ravenously consume!

These are great. Used the leftover brisket (from your recipe) and just used canned ranch-style beans. Easy, yummy, and quick clean up for a weeknight meal!

I took a million shortcuts and these were still delish. First I used leftover potroast instead of brisket. I also just used a can of goya pinto beans heated up mwith minced garlic, pepper and Frank’s hot sause. I also use Trader Joes’s fresh salsa (it’s chunky and looks like pico de gallo) and Trader Joes’s enchilada sauce. These were so good as they were I can’t imagine how good they’s be if I used Ree’s beans and pico.
