Taco Meat Recipe

This taco meat recipe makes a delicious (and quick) meal for your family.

At lunchtime one day, I had tortillas, cheese, salad ingredients, and salsa in my kitchen. So I decided to pull out a pint of my home-canned ground venison to make this taco meat recipe for lunch. (You could use cubed/shredded venison, but we prefer the ground venison.)

Here's how to make homemade taco meat.

My Taco Meat Recipe (It's Easy!)

The beginnings of taco meat...meat!

Add meat to the pan and bring to a simmer, making sure it’s good and hot. Drain, then add about 2 Tablespoons of taco meat seasoning (recipe below) and mix. 

Taco Meat Seasoning

You can use store-purchased seasoning, but I happen to make my own taco meat seasoning!

  • 3 T chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 4 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp pepper

Mix well. Store in an airtight container.

Quick homemade tacos for lunch!
