- 1 pound ground venison
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 envelope taco seasoning
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 cups (16 ounces) 4% small-curd cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 10 flour tortillas (8 inches)

- In a large skillet, cook venison over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, salsa and taco seasoning; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, oregano and cumin.
