Oh hey there! Happy Taco Tuesday!

I recently asked my Facebook friends to share the first thing they thought of when they thought of my blog, and one of my friends said TACOS!

I had to laugh, because it is totally true, I do share a lot of taco recipes! From Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork Tacos to Carne Asada Tacos to Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos, my love of tacos runs deep! And this new recipe for brisket tacos is definitely going to become a new favorite!

Growing up in Oklahoma, we ate a lot of beef brisket. For a while, I could never find brisket at the grocery stores in San Diego, but my local store recently started carrying this wonderful cut of beef and I couldn’t be more excited.

Slow cooking brisket makes it nice and tender, perfect for shredding up and turning into tacos!
