Mule deer tacos
There are hundreds of ways to make tacos, but today we are making one of my favorite ways to make wild game tacos. This recipe is definitely a family favorite around my house.
- Ground wild game (today we are using mule deer, but you can use whatever you have in your freezer)
- Taco seasoning
- 1 small can of diced green chilis
- 1 can of refried beans
- 3 to 4 ripe avocados
- Half of an onion diced
- Fresh bundle of cilantro
- Shredded cheese
- Sour cream (I forgot to buy this, but it sure tastes good on any kind of taco)
- 3 to 4 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 stick of butter
Add half a stick of butter into your pan and let it melt. Add your diced onion and can of green chilis. Once they have cooked down and are tender, add your ground meat. Cook until the meat is all browned. At the same time, start warming up your beans in a small pot.
Once the meat is nice and browned, add your package of taco seasoning. Mix thoroughly.
Start frying up your tortillas on a flat skillet or wide enough pan. Add butter and coat the tortilla in butter. Cook until a light golden brown.
Time to build your tacos and enjoy! Top with tomato, avocado, cheese, cilantro, sour cream (if you have it), hot sauce or anything else you'd like to add on there.
