Taco Burgers


Taco or Burger? Why not both, at the same time! This recipe, provided by Kelly, is a unique twist to both the taco and the burger! Here’s a fun tip from Kelly!

I don’t have a grill so I usually cook my burgers on my George Forman but tonight I cooked them on my pancake griddle!

Spread 1-2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil on your griddle and heat to high. Once it’s heated throw on your burgers, let them cook for three minutes and then flip. Two to three minutes more and then add your cheese. You’re supposed to cover it at this point with a basting cover but I don’t have that – or know what it is – so I just put a metal bowl over it. You can also tent it with aluminum foil. Anyway what ever you cover it with, you cook it that way for another minute and it comes out covered in ooey gooey cheesy goodness.

Enjoy this recipe Kitchen chums!

Taco Burgers

Serves 4


1 lb ground beef
1 package (2 Tbsp) taco seasoning
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup crushed corn chips
1 egg Salt and black pepper

4 slices cheese (pepper jack is great with these, but if you prefer something more mild I usually go with white cheddar!)
4 hamburger buns
Lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa, for topping


Heat grill.

In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, taco seasoning, grated onion, egg, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Add in the crushed tortilla chips and lightly combine. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.

Place the patties on the grill over medium heat. Close grill and cook, turning once, until desired doneness – about 10 minutes for medium. Top each patty with the cheese and cook just until the cheese melts.

Layer the buns with sour cream, a patty, lettuce, tomato and salsa.
