The Best Homemade Venison Tacos

I’ve never met a taco I didn’t like. Basically, we have some version of tacos every other week (if not EVERY week… because #tacosarelife) but I’m especially fond of Venison Tacos because we always have a freezer full of venison burger and they are literally the easiest meal EVER.

These are a week night staple in our household. This homemade taco seasoning is great with venison but you could use it with any type of meat (hamburger, ground turkey, chicken.) Enjoy!
