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 (=

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.

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.
