Any large game animal

Special Equipment

For best flavor use cast iron pan


  1. In a large skillet heat olive oil and add ground venison until browned.

  2. Season meat with cumin, chili powder, and nutmeg. (Cumin pulls a lot of flavor out of venison, add more based on desired taste)

  3. Salt and pepper meat to taste

  4. Before removing the skillet from heat, add the orange juice and stir until just absorbed into meat. (This brings out a sweet flavor and also tenderizes the venison)

  5. Remove from heat, spoon meat into corn tortillas, and load up with your favorite toppings!
