Get out your leftover brisket and start chopping it into ¼” to 3/8” cubes. Chop all of the vegetables to a taco friendly size and set aside.
Mix your spices together to create your taco mix. Heat up the frying pan to medium heat and add your chopped brisket. Combine water and 2 TBSP taco mix together in a small cup. Stir well. Pour over chopped brisket and mix well. Simmer on low for at least 10 min. or until most of the moisture is evaporated and the brisket is well seasoned.
Remove from heat and set aside. Custom build your tacos to your liking; add the brisket meat first, then tomatoes, onion, and lettuce. Top with cheese and your favorite bbq sauce. Add guacamole, salsa, or sour cream to your liking.
Wrap your taco tight and enjoy.
