Shredded Spam Tacos


Yes, this dish is made with Spam. I use the low-sodium Spam. This dish is quick, easy and delicious. You can also top off your taco with sour cream, guacamole, or salsa.

8 tacos


  • cooking spray

  • 1 (12 ounce) can low-sodium canned luncheon meat (such as SPAM®)

  • ½ (1 ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix

  • 2 tablespoons water, or as needed

  • 1 (8 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded lettuce

  • 8 ounces block Cheddar cheese, grated

  • 1 small tomato, diced

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 2 (2.5 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained


  1. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat; add luncheon meat. Cook and stir until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add taco seasoning mix; stir to coat. Pour in water; cook and stir until water is evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn heat to low to keep luncheon meat warm.

  2. Spray a separate skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat; add 1 tortilla and cook until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  3. Layer luncheon meat, lettuce, Cheddar cheese, tomato, onion, and black olives onto each tortilla.

Cook's Note:

You can also heat the tortillas in the microwave on a plate in less then 90 seconds.
