Venison burritos

Venison burritos

There’s two things our family loves – Mexican food and venison meat. So it’s only natural that we love to combine the two.

The benefit to this recipe is that it doesn’t take 6 hours to cook. In fact, it can be on the table and ready to eat in under 30 minutes.

Here is our wild take on burritos. As always, if you don’t have venison, you can substitute for minced beef. Let us know in the comments below if you try it out.
