For the Meat Filling
1 Pound Ground Grass Fed Bison, Pork, Beef or Lamb
2 Tb Taco Spice Mix (recipe follows)
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
Crispy Taco Shells and Chopped Lettuce for serving
Poblano Sour Cream Sauce (recipe follows)
Select a wide sauté pan to allow for plenty of surface area to spread out the meat. Heat the pan over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil to coat the pan. Spread the meat out in a single layer of even thickness. Sprinkle the Taco Spice Mix and kosher salt on the topside of the meat to evenly coat. Allow the meat to sauté without moving it for at least 2 minutes. When the meat is browned nicely on the side in contact with the pan then use a spatula to break the meat up into small pieces. Sauté just until the meat is cooked through then remove from the pan right away to keep it moist. Fill the crispy shells with the cooked meat and top with some of the lettuce & poblano sour cream sauce.
