Recipe type: Wild game
Cuisine: Southwest
Prep time:  20 mins
Total time:  20 mins
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 lb. Ground venison (other game or store-bought meat may be substituted)
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning (This time I used McCormick)
  • 1 hot house tomato
  • 1 package salad greens
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 can Refried beans, 16 oz.
  • 12 small flour tortillas
  • Shredded Mexican cheese, or nacho and taco cheese
  • Salsa
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, cook the venison over medium-high heat
  2. While the meat is cooking, chop your tomato and slice the avocados.
  3. When the meat is cooked through, add the taco seasoning and simmer per package directions. (Note: Heat until almost cooked through. Game meat cooks rapidly. Take care not to overcook it.)
  4. Warm the refried beans, in a saucepan, while the meat is simmering.
  5. When the meat and beans are hot, heat the tortillas.
  6. Add small amounts of beans, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato and avocado to the tortilla.
  7. Top it off with the salsa of your choice.
WHALLAH! Tacos for dinner. Enjoy!
