Yes, it’s St. Patrick’s Day and the brisket is being cooked by the boatload!
But, after the parties ends and the guest leave, what are you going to do with all that leftover brisket?
I say, bring on the cheese, potatoes, and jalapenos!
My Cheesy Jalapeno Slow Cooker Brisket Fries are perfect for the day after the festivities.
I made my brisket in the slow cooker, but note, regardless of how you cooked your brisket, it will work for this dish!
I diced my brisket up into 1 inch chunks, lightly fried it in a little olive oil and that’s pretty much it!
Now cook up some fries, and top those babies with lots of brisket and all the toppings you can think of!
I used lots of jalapenos, cheese, and green onions. Then I placed it under the broiler to melt the cheese.
All done and ready to eat!
