Brisket Nachos are a wonderful family appetizer with barbecued smoked brisket, tortilla chips, cheese and cole slaw. The perfect game day food for barbecue lovers!
For a long time I would say that cheesecake was my all-time favorite food. I’m starting to waiver on that proclamation. If there was a slice of cheesecake on one plate and sliced smoked brisket on another, I’m pretty sure I would go for the brisket these days.
Instead of the traditional black-eyed peas and ham hocks for New Year’s dinner, we went with a smoked brisket. It was melt in your mouth fantastic. We don’t have a smoker, so my husband used the charcoal grill and some hickory wood to smoke the brisket for a bit. Then we wrapped it in foil and cooked it slow in the oven for about 10 hours. It surpassed any smoked brisket that we’ve had from the local bbq joints!
I took a bit of the brisket before it all disappeared and made Brisket Nachos. If you haven’t tried this wonderful concoction, you are missing out. Brisket Nachos are perfect for game day snacks or lazy Sunday afternoons. I actually had this for breakfast, that’s how much I love brisket!
Barbecue brisket and cole slaw are the perfect sandwich combination so I had to try a little cole slaw on the Brisket Nachos and it was fantastic, fabulous, dare I offend by saying best ever? I truly loved it.
I used my favorite little Lodge Cast Iron Servers and popped them in the oven for just a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. You could make a nacho bar and let everyone choose their favorite toppings for a fun dinner or game day snack.
