Chef Taylor’s Cinco de Mayo Brisket Tostadas

Happy Cinco de Mayo weekend! Whether you are planning on celebrating at home or going to a party, it’s hard to beat Chef Taylor’s simple but delicious Brisket Tostadas! The smokiness of the brisket is the perfect contrast to the freshness of the guacamole and salsa, which will go perfectly with an ice cold margarita, or the 2017 Barrel Aged Virginia Claret. Enjoy!
