How to Make Authentic Mexican Venison Tacos and Salsa

How to Make Authentic Mexican Venison Tacos and Salsa

Unlike the oversized, overstuffed tacos found at many fast-food places, authentic Mexican tacos consist mainly of chopped onion, cilantro, meat and salsa on a warm corn tortilla. This recipe simply substitutes beef, chicken, or pork with the low-fat, protein-packed, organic goodness of wild game! Additionally, I’ll share two different styles of delicious salsa for your tacos to choose from. Let’s get started!
