Easy Duck Tacos & Giveaway

Easy and flavorful! Kick those tacos up a notch with incredible duck legs! Taco night just got better!

Have you ever cooked with duck before? I have not. I know, it’s crazy, and I have been food blogging for 7 years! This is my first time making duck. So I thought, how could it be so different than chicken? Well. Let me tell you. It is amazing and puts the chicken to shame. My husband said that these were the best tacos that he has ever had. EVER. Seriously? Seriously.
EVER? Wow. That is a testimony. I am seriously having a duck cooking adventure, and it is so much fun! These are the perks of being a food blogger, I get to make recipes that I never thought that I would imagine or try, my world gets bigger and better every day.


What you will need to make these yummy Easy Duck Tacos:

  • Maple Leaf Farms Duck Legs
  • Spices
  • Taco toppings:
  • Mesclun lettuce
  • Olives
  • Cholula Sauce
  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole

I used the basic seasonings that I do for tacos: Seasoned Salt, Black Pepper, Cumin, Garlic Powder, and Parsley. Combine those in a bowl. They are just the right amount of spice. Add Chile powder if you like your tacos really spicy. Some people in my family aren’t so crazy about spicy, but we won’t mention any names…
I covered a baking sheet with parchment paper, seasoned the duck legs, roasted them in the oven from 35-40 minutes until the skin was crispy and the meat was pulling away from the bone, by testing, just poke a fork into the duck and the juices will run clear.
Shred up the duck when done in a bowl using two forks. Leave the skin on to add more flavor. Taste to see if you need any more spices or salt and pepper.
Set up your ingredients in small bowls so that everyone can make their own tacos. I love using Shredded Pepper Jack cheese, Kalamata Olives, chopped tomatoes, Mesclun greens, chopped onions, Cholula Sauce, Guacamole, but you can add whatever makes your heart sing.
Roll it all up in a flour or corn tortilla. I chose a Low Carb tortilla because that is my thing right now. But you choose whatever makes your taste buds happy, and make a couple tacos per person, trust me, they are so delicious!
Maple Leaf Farms sent me a fabulous box full of Roast Half Duck with Orange Sauce, Natural Duck Legs, Boneless Duck Breast and Duck Bacon, so stay tuned for some more delicious duck recipes! Duck Bacon is next!
