Use leftover brisket or this recipe Traeger Smoked Brisket. Slice brisket into thin slices. Place in pan with drippings, cover with foil and keep warm.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to the Smoke setting (set to Super Smoke if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat for 5 minutes.

For the Smoked Cilantro Cream: Spread sour cream onto a sheet pan and place in grill. Smoke for 30 minutes. Remove from grill and turn up the temperature to 350 degrees F.

Place cilantro, jalapeños, garlic, lime juice, salt and smoked sour cream into a blender. Blend until smooth and refrigerate to chill.

Wrap tortillas in foil, no more than 10 per foil packet. Place on grill for 10 to 15 minutes or until warm.
