Ground Lamb Tacos

Ground Lamb Tacos

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes


  • 1¬†teaspoon black pepper, perferably coarsely ground and fresh
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt or Greek all-purpose seasoning (optional)
  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup diced onion (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (vegetable oil will do if you don't have olive oil)
  • flour tortillas
  • 10 oz Ro-Tel or pico de gallo (Diced tomatoes will do if Ro-Tel and pico de gallo aren't sold in your area. Get plain or pepper & onion, NOT Italian style.)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • sour cream
  • whole jalapenos (optional)
  • Directions:

    1) Mix the dry seasonings in a bowl. The measurements do not have to be exact. I just measure by estimation and it turns out great every time. 
    2) Heat the oil in a skillet over medium to medium high heat, then cook the onions for about a minute.
    3) Add the ground lamb, break apart with spatula, and add the spiced from step 1. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. It takes maybe 5 minutes to cook.
    4) Serve with tortillas, Ro-Tel, cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos. (The jalapenos are to be eaten separately, not wrapped in the tacos.)

    Delicious, easy and fun to make!!
