Lamb Tacos

This quick taco recipe using ground lamb will be a pleasant surprise for your family. Our whole crew loved the change-up from our standard beef taco fare. There were no leftovers!


  • (1 lb) Ground lamb
  • (2 tsp) Chili powder
  • (2 tsp) Cumin
  • (2 tsp) Dried oregano
  • (1) Lime or lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Garlic powder (to taste)


In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, and oregano; set aside. Add ground lamb to a skillet and season to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook on medium heat until browned. Add spice mixture and lemon/lime juice. Cook 2-3 minutes longer. Serve on flour or corn tortillas with your favorite toppings: cilantro, onion, salsa, pico de gallo, etc.
