- 4 cups canola or other vegetable oil
- 9 corn tortillas
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar
- 1 1/2 cups pinto beans, warm
- 1 cup cooked shredded brisket
- 1 cup shredded Monterey jack
- 1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
- 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
- Sour cream
- Sliced jalapenos
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.
Drop corn tortillas 1 at a time into hot oil. Fry until the tortilla turns golden brown, about a minute. Remove the tortillas with tongs or a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack set over a shallow pan or paper towel lined plate.
Transfer the tortillas to a baking sheet. Sprinkle a layer of half the shredded Cheddar on top of the tortillas. Set aside the remaining cheese. Add a layer of heated pinto beans onto the cheese. Add the shredded brisket on top of the pinto beans. Top with Monterey jack and remaining Cheddar. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 to 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven to a cutting board and cut each tortilla into quarters.
