Bison Tacos

Good Evening!

I hope everyone had a magnificent Monday! We had an adventurous day today…..I found a place that was supposed to be open year round and they sell all kinds of organic veggies and vegan treats, AND they have baby pigs to play with. I get the boys into the car and we drive way the HECK out into no where, finally find it after 3 wrong turns, and they are CLOSED! They are on vacation this week….BOO! But I did get some pretty shots of the reservoir as we drove over it!

So we decided to just come back home and play here instead….no baby pigs but whatever.

I have been dying to try the Bison/Buffalo meat from Whole Foods and today I just went for it. I’ve had Buffalo before but never cooked it myself……so AWESOME! I ended up making Buffalo Tacos! YUM-O

Goodie List:

-2 one pound packages Rancher Ground Buffalo

-1 package Taco seasoning

-1 box Organic Blue Corn Taco Shells

– 1/2 cup chopped onion

-1/2 cup diced tomato

-Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste

First cook Buffalo just like you would beef, nice hot skillet coated with cooking spray-making sure meat is cooked until brown through out. Once all redness is cooked out, add tomato and onion mixing both into the Buffalo mixture letting the get warm, once onion and tomato have softened add Taco seasoning according to package and in corporate through entire skillet. Let mixture simmer for a bit continuously stirring to make sure everything is seasoned. Add your salt and pepper in for an extra flavor kick. While Buffalo mix is warming, place taco shells onto a baking sheet and place in pre-heated 425 oven for 2 minutes to get them crispy. Remove shells from oven and stuff with meat mix, top with cheese and place back in oven until cheese is melted. Plate…..and CHOW DOWN!
