Yes, this dish is made with Spam®. I use the low-sodium Spam®. This dish is quick, easy and delicious. I also made Mexican Rice as a side dish to go with the tacos. You can also top your tacos with sour cream, guacamole, or salsa.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Shred luncheon meat onto a large plate using a cheese grater.

  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add shredded luncheon meat; cook and stir until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Cook and stir until luncheon meat is evenly seasoned and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low to keep warm.

  • Spray another skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Place 1 tortilla in the skillet and cook until heated through, about 30 seconds per side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • Top warm tortillas with luncheon meat, lettuce, Cheddar cheese, olives, tomato, and onion.

Cook's Note:

You can warm the tortillas on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave instead of in a skillet if preferred.

I made one change and that is that instead of using the Lite Spam and adding taco seasoning (sodium) to it, I just bought Chorizo flavored Spam, eliminated the taco seasoning, and called it good. I didn't really know how I was going to shred the Spam so I just cubed it and that worked just fine. Lastly I used a tortilla bowl mold and prepared my tortilla's that way to make individual taco salads. Fun fun fun! Thanks for the recipe and the idea! Read More
