Cooking Instructions

Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil or bacon grease in a large nonstick skillet. Add the diced onion and garlic, sauté until the onion is soft, then add ground meat. Season the meat with salt and southwestern or taco seasoning. Cook until meat is browned through. Add sausage slices and Rotel. Reduce heat and simmer while you get everything else together.

If you prefer fajita style nachos, season venison steaks well with salt and southwestern seasoning. Grill over a hot charcoal fire or gas grill on high for three to four minutes per side. Remove steaks from heat, cover loosely with foil and let them rest for ten to fifteen minutes. Slice the steaks, across the grain, into thin strips.

Set all of your fixins out on the counter or table and let your dinner guests build their own masterpiece.
