  • 1 cup leftover brisket
  • 12 jalapeños
  • 15 slices streaky bacon thin
  • 18 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup grated cheddar or mozzarella
  • 1 tsp BBQ rub if using
  • 2 tbsp BBQ sauce


  • Split jalapeños lengthways and with gloves on remove the seeds.
  • Dice up the brisket into small chunks that will fit into your jalapenos.
  • Cook 3 slices of bacon and chop finely.
  • Mix cream cheese and cheddar in a large bowl, add the chopped brisket, BBQ rub and cooked bacon.
