4 servings (serving size: 2 tacos)

Tacos have broad appeal, making them a good dish in which to try a new ingredient. Buffalo tastes like beef but has less saturated fat. It's available in many supermarkets--at the meat counter or in the frozen section. Substitute ground beef or turkey.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and buffalo; cook 5 minutes or until buffalo is done, stirring to crumble. Add tomato paste and next 4 ingredients (through pepper); stir well to combine. Stir in 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until thick.

Step 2

Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon about 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each tortilla; top each tortilla with 2 tablespoons chopped tomato, 2 tablespoons lettuce, 1 tablespoon cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons olives, and 1 1/2 teaspoons sour cream. Fold in half.

I thought this was delicious. I halved the recipe. The only thing I did different was add a 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder and some Greek Seasoning. I loved the taste of the Buffalo. I might start using it in more of my meat dishes since it's leaner and a little more flavorful than beef.
