Wild Game Tacos

As winter holds its icy grip on spring and my cabin fever hits an all-time high, I turn to cooking one of my favorite dishes and favorite “comfort food” as a relaxation exercise,

Wild Game Tacos. Tacos that are made with existing ground wild game you already have in your freezer from past adventures are quick, easy and delicious. Try this recipe and I guarantee you it will be a go-to weekly staple on your family’s dinner menu. For step by step instructions check out the WILD GAME TACOS video.


· 1 pound of ground wild game (elk, deer, antelope, or turkey) makes about 4-5 tacos

· Corn tortillas (optional, unless you want to buy your taco shells from the store)

· Seasoning (Salt, Pepper, chili powder, garlic salt, Tony Chachere “Creole”)

· Cooking oil (I like Avocado/olive oil for the meat and vegetable oil for the taco shells

· Garnishment – Grated cheese, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, salsa


1. Defrost ground wild game and season with chili powder, garlic salt etc….

2. Brown ground meat in big frying pan with a little Avocado/olive oil (breaking up meat to small pieces)

3. Fry corn tortilla shells in small pan (see video)

4. Grate cheese, slice tomatoes, chop onions etc…. for toppings

5. Make and enjoy your tacos
