I discovered these on a road trip through New Mexico and conned the recipe out of the cook. They were absolutely delicious and are a great way to serve up your leftover brisket!

This was good! I did tweak a bit (= I thought I had a can of diced green chilies - but instead had a large bag in the freezer - which I didn't want to mess with to use 2 tbsp. I used cilantro jalapeño tortillas and added sriracha and chopped cabbage that I needed to use up. I layered cheese beef cabbage cheese sriracha between the tortillas. Next time I would add a layer of glue cheese between the beef and cabbage. I liked the crunch the cabbage added. The sriracha worked well since I didn't have available diced green chilies. I would definitely make this again (= Read More

What a neat way to use up left over corned beef. I wasn't sure how these flavors would mesh but these were really pretty good. A nice change from the standard quesadilla. Thanks. Read More

This was very good and we enjoyed the kick from the green chilies. The flavors blended well but the next time we have these I am adding some well drained sauerkraut to the mix. Served these with tri-colored gnocchi with 'Creamy Alfredo Sauce' from AR. Read More

Easy delicious meal for almost any leftover meat. I had some leftover corned beef which was delicious and some leftover shredded beef. That was great too! Read More
