Venison Tacos are a favorite around here. I think my boys would eat tacos every single day of their lives for breakfast, lunch, dinner and for a snack if I’d fix it for them. This is one meal I don’t feel guilty about them glutting on. It’s only 252 calories and has several essential vitamins.
I know, I know–tacos are such a simple recipe and it’s nothing new and exciting. You’re maybe wondering why I have it on my website. Well, it’s because tacos are simple. Haven’t you read my tagline, “Keeping It Simple.” That’s what Deer Recipes is all about and you can’t get any simpler than tacos.
I want to inspire my readers to think outside the box. I want you to use venison in every recipe you possibly can and that includes tacos. You can use ground venison burger in any recipe that calls for ground beef, so the possibilities are endless.
Feel free to print our recipe card:
If you don’t want to make your own taco seasoning that’s okay. You can always use your favorite brand of taco seasoning from the store. I personally like to make it myself because it seems to have a better flavor.
Sometimes when I get a wild hair, I like to add a dash of red pepper flakes. Some people can’t handle it (I won’t mention any names) so instead of adding it to the whole batch I just add it to my taco.
This goes great with baked potato wedges or fries, a side salad or like I do–without sides.
The nutrition facts are calculated without the added lettuce and tomatoes because that is optional. If you add that be sure to recalculate the facts.
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- Venison Tacos are somewhat low in calories and low in cholesterol and have no sugar.
- They are also a little high in fat and might be a little too high in sodium for some of you that are on a low-sodium diet.

To make this dish more diet-friendly…
- To help lower the fat and sodium use low-fat and/or low sodium cheese or omit it altogether. You can also use a salt alternative for the added salt or omit it. Also, instead of using a tortilla you could use large pieces of lettuce. This will cut quite a bit of fat, sodium, and carbs.
