Recipe by The Bison Council
"Lots of spices in this ground bison and egg omelet make for a great taco filling, and the pineapple salsa with fresh cilantro is the perfect topping."

I loved using bison for this recipe. It surprisingly tasted like ground chuck with fewer calories and half the fat. However, I would have preferred a stronger taco seasoning rather than the spices listed. I was a little hesitant about using the scrambled eggs, but they were barely discernible. The pineapple salsa was fantastic even though I left out the cilantro (my husband hates it) and used only half of the jalapeno (I'm a heat wimp). I can see this salsa on fish and will make it again. I will definitely buy bison again.
We would give the salsa on this a 5 and the taco on this a 4. The taco itself needed a little more flavor, and no matter how good the salsa was, it couldn't make up for that. We really liked how the bison cooked up and how fresh it tastes. I did add quite a bit of seasoning to this---especially using Tajin which was a good flavor enhancer for this recipe! I would try this again! Love the bison!
