Spiced Jerky Tacos



  • 8 – 10 corn or flour tortillas (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup sliced beef jerky (you can choose your favourite flavour, but we suggest our DJays chilli jerky for some spicy warmth)
  • Taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce (Iceberg is best)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, tasty cheese, Havarti – the choice is up to you)
  • 1 avocado, diced

For serving (these are optional and you can use condiments of your choice)

  • Sour cream (can substitute with plain, unsweetened yoghurt)
  • Hot sauce (check out our range of delicious extras which include the multi award-winning Dr Paul’s hot sauces)
  • Fresh coriander, chopped


  • Prepare the toppings and condiments (diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, avo, coriander and hot sauce) and place into separate bowls.
  • Cut the beef jerky into bite-sized pieces (depending on the size of the original slices), sprinkle taco seasoning over pieces (adjust the amount of seasoning according to your personal preference) and place in a plan.
  • Heat the jerky over medium heat for a minute or two to release extra flavour, tossing frequently.
  • Remove jerky from pan and set aside to keep warm.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or cast iron griddle over medium heat (a heavy pan is best as the tortillas are cooked ‘dry’)
  • Warm each tortilla for around 30 seconds each side until they are soft and pliable, stacking them in a clean tea towel to keep warm.

How to eat your jerky tacos

  • Place everything on the table (warm tortillas, warm jerky, hot sauce, condiments etc).
  • Take a tortilla, place a portion of the seasoned jerky in the bottom, then top with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, shredded cheese and extras of your choice.
