Southwestern Bison Eyeball Tacos:

Note: You can use any 90/10 Ground Beef or Lean Ground Turkey if preferred.

Oh, and this would be a good Halloween recipe!


2.5 Tbsp. Olive Oil Mayo

2.5 Tbsp. NF Plain Greek Yogurt

1 canned Chipotle Pepper in Adobo, seeded, minced

1 pound Ground Bison

1 small bunch Green Onions, finely diced

finger pinch Kosher Salt

finger pinch Black Pepper

1 tsp. Ground Cumin

1/2 tsp. + Tapitio, or other Hot Sauce

2 Tbsp. Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped

1 small EACH Red & Yellow Bell Pepper, seeded; cut into 1” wide strips

Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Corn Taco Shells

Lime Wedges, optional for serving

1 ripe Avocado, mashed

Shredded Cabbage

Sliced Black Olives

Baked Tortilla Chips


Step 1: Combine mayo, yogurt, and minced chipotle in a small dish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 2: Combine meat, and next 6 ingredients (thru cilantro) in a medium bowl; set aside. Lay out strips of bell peppers on paper towels. Spray both sides with olive oil spray. Set aside.

Step 3: Spray a large skillet and place over med-high heat. Add meat mixture and cook until browned, breaking apart as you’re cooking with a spatula. When finished, remove to a warm serving dish; keep warm. Re-spray skillet; turn heat up to high. Add bell pepper slices cooking until slightly “charred” on both sides. You can do this on a hot grill if you prefer. Remove from heat to a waiting tray.

Step 4: Place shredded cabbage, mashed avocado, lime wedges, warm taco shells, and chipotle sauce in bowls and add to the table with taco meat. Make eye balls before serving or let your goblins make their own using a dollop of chipotle sauce topped with a sliced olive.
