*from Smitten Kitchen
At 11 p.m. on December 30th, I unwrapped a piece of brisket nearly the size of my baby, browned it in a pan, laid it in the stoneware liner, threw in some onions, a pile of spices, cups of tomatoes and water on top, turned it to low, and at 9 o’clock the next morning woke up and nearly fainted from the deliciousness all around me. Dinner. Was. Made. I had done nothing. And it was the most perfectly cooked piece of brisket I had ever seen. Why did I wait so long? I am consumed with regret.

These are fairly high-brow nachos, topped with a mountain of soft, spicy, chile-braised short ribs run through with rivers of molten cheese, above hillocks of guacamole; soft mounds of salsa; creamy pools of sour cream. They're a little more halftime show than Super Bowl, and that's okay: The showmanship here is matched by the flavor.
