BBQ Brisket Tacos


  1. For the pickled onions, add thinly sliced red onion to a glass jar or bowl. Set aside.  
  2. Add apple cider vinegar, water, granulated sugar and salt to a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat.  
  3. Whisk together until the sugar and salt dissolve. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat.  
  4. Pour the hot liquid over the sliced red onions.  
  5. Let cool down to room temperature, about 20-30 minutes, before using. Refrigerate any leftovers.  
  6. To prepare the tacos, heat a sauté pan to medium heat. Cook chorizo until done, drain and reserve.   
  7. In a small sauce pan, heat refried beans, stirring occasionally.
  8. Warm brisket according to package instructions.           
  9. Meanwhile, in a hot skillet, heat tortillas for 2 minutes on each side.    
  10. Spread refried beans on tortillas.
  11. Distribute brisket, chorizo, coleslaw, jalapenos, avocado, cilantro, and pickled onion evenly among the tortillas. Drizzle with barbecue sauce. Garnish with lime.

Note: You can make the pickled onions ahead and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks so you always have them ready for tacos!
