I love making food for my dogs. I have to Chihuahua Sheltie mixes and I thought making them tacos would be really fitting. Plus they love cheese. Anyways I got to work making a dog friendly recipe for them. These are fine for humans to eat to but they might not have as much flavor as usual considering the fact that dogs can’t eat a lot of spices. When I let my dogs try these for the first time, they immediately picked them up and ran away to eat them. Keep in mind that these might be pretty messy. My dogs like to eat the meat and cheese out first. Then they will eat the lettuce and the shell.


  1. Meat:
  2. 1/2 pound ground beef
  3. Mini Taco shells:
  4. 1 cup flour
  5. 1/3 cup lukewarm water
  6. 1 1/2 tbsp canola oil
  7. 1/3 tsp baking powder
  8. 1/3 tsp salt
  9. Seasoning:
  10. 1 1/2 tbsp oregano
  11. 1 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 270.

  2. Mix flour baking powder and 1/3 tsp of salt in a medium size bowl.

  3. Pour the water and oil directly in the bowl and mix it together. You should end up with dough.

  4. Falten the dough into evenly sized mini tortillas. I made mine a little over 5 inches.

  5. Cover the tortillas with a towel for 15 minutes.

  6. Cook on a frying pan until there are a few visible brown spots on the bottom. Then flip the and let them cook for around 10-15 more seconds. Let them cool.

  7. Spray the cooled tortillas with cooking spray and draw them over the top rack of the oven. Put a pan on the bottom rack to catch the oil. Let them cook until they start to brown.

  8. Mix the rest of the salt and oregano in a small bowl.

  9. Cook the beef in a pan like usual. Mix in the seasoning that you mixed earlier. Cook until there is no more red meat.

  10. When the taco meat is cooked and the shells are cooled, you can start assembling your tacos. Put the meat in the shells. You can also add cheese and lettuce. Make sure you check to make sure your toppings are dog friendly. Remember dogs CAN NOT eat tomatoes.

  11. Now they are ready for your dogs! Make sure you feed it to them outside or somewhere that you can easily clean because they will most likely run away with the tacos and deconstruct them. I speak from experience.
