Buffalo Kale Tacos

Is that really Kale in your tacos? Yes! You need to check out this delicious recipe from one of my readers.

Wendi Humes, a community member, shared this recipe with me. It’s one of her family’s favorite taco recipes, and it includes kale! I promised her son I’s include it in my next book and make a video. So here it goes!




  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. Once heated, add ground buffalo meat, carrots, onion, and garlic. Toss beef around while it cooks to break it up. Cooking for about 5 minutes, until the meat begins to brown and the veggies soften.
  2. Add salt, chili powder, cumin, and tomato paste. Add in kale strips, toss to combine, and add the water; reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, until kale has softened.
  3. Scoop mixture into taco shells. Top with pico de gallo, avocados, sour cream, sliced black olives, or your favorite toppings.


Ground buffalo meat is very lean and therefore, no draining of the “fat” is necessary for this recipe. You can also use ground beef or turkey as a substitute.
