Looking for a crowd-pleasing marijuana edible that is easy to make, serve and enjoy with little to no fuss? If so, then you have come to just the right place. Whether you enjoy using cannabis for the more medicinal CBD qualities, or rather enjoy an intense high from the psychoactive element THC, these weed tacos can be utilized by either one. Just be sure that your infusing ingredient only contains the cannabinoid that you prefer and follow the recipe as is. It’s that easy, and the best part is that the majority of the toppings will contain absolutely no cannabis, so it’s also simple to provide an additional option for those who might not enjoy marijuana edibles themselves.


  • 6 grams of cannabis (or rosin chips)
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (seed and diced)
  • 1 sweet green pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 onion (peeled and diced)
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin
  • ½ teaspoon on celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 1 8-ounce can of tomato sauce (plain or seasoned)


  • 1 cookie sheet
  • 1 layer of parchment paper
  • 1 weed grinder
  • aluminum foil
  • 1 oven safe bowl
  • 1 saucepan


  1. To begin, you will need to prepare the cannabis to be decarboxylated. If you are using rosin chips or CBD strains, then this extra step is not necessary, and you can move on to step 4. To do so, you should preheat an oven to 250 F, and grind the bud using a weed grinder, or scissors.
  2. Place one sheet of parchment paper over a flat baking sheet and spread the cannabis grind evenly in the center of it.
  3. Bake the bud grind for 30 minutes to activate the psychoactive element within the plant materials.
  4. Now you need to infuse the olive oil using decarboxylated cannabis. Add the cannabis alone with the olive oil into an oven safe bowl.
  5. Cover the bowl using aluminum foil and bake it on the center rack in an oven at 250 F for two full hours.
  6. Approximately 20 minutes before the oil has finished infusing you will want to begin to prepare the ingredients. If you haven't already, cut, peel, seed, and dice the onion, green pepper, and the jalapeno pepper.
  7. Add the ground beef, green pepper, onion, and jalapeno pepper to a saucepan and set the burner to medium heat.
  8. Cook the ingredients until the onions begin to turn translucent usually 8-10 minutes.
  9. Once the onions have softened, it is time to add the cumin, celery salt, and garlic salt and mix them in.
  10. Proceed to cook the ingredients for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  11. It is now time to pour in the cannabis infused olive oil along with the tomato sauce into the saucepan to coat the other ingredients.
  12. Reduce the heat to low, combine the ingredients well and continue to cook the mixture until it reaches a nice and thick consistency.
  13. Remove the saucepan from the heat and serve heaped into hard or soft shelled tacos.

Topping choices

The ideal toppings for this taco seasoning recipe will depend on your own personal preference but to help we have included a list of the most popular topping options along with how to prepare them to dress tacos.

Sour cream- Sour cream requires no preparation, just grab a container from your local store and open it to serve.

Lettuce- Lettuce is one of the most common taco topping choices, but it’s also one of the most difficult to keep on a hard shell. The best way to prepare lettuce for your cannabis tacos is to cut it in long slices, and then again in the opposite direction to create small square cubes.

Tomato- Tomatoes should be slice four times lengthwise and again the opposite direction after it has been cored.

Salsa- Salsa is another popular no prep needed topping that only requires a spoon for easy application.

White onions- Dice the white onions into cubes in the same fashion as you did the lettuce.

Green onions- Green onions can be diced in large or small chunks for a quick and easy topping choice.

Guacamole- Guacamole is just like sour cream or salsa and is commonly found in the coolers at your local grocer. Just open the container and equip it with a spoon for guests.

Cheese- Any flavor of cheese can be perfect for tacos depending on the flavors that you might prefer. Some people like to mash a few kinds of cheese together, while others prefer a straight mozzarella, cheddar, or marble option. Cheese should always be finely grated, so that it is easy to chew and melts over the hamburger when added as a topping.
