My 7-year-old daughter requested cheeseburger tacos for dinner one night, so I created this and all the kids loved it! The adults also raved after tweaking their tacos by adding onions, peppers, hot sauce, etc. to the meat mixture. Serve with hamburger toppings on the side. This is a very kid friendly recipe!

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef with black pepper, salt, and garlic powder in the hot skillet until meat is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Reduce heat to low and mix 1/2 cup ketchup into beef.

  • Lay a tortilla onto a work surface and place about 1/3 cup beef mixture and 1/4 cup shredded cheese onto tortilla in a line down the center. Roll tortilla over meat and cheese, fold in top and bottom to enclose filling, and finish rolling into a burrito shape. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Place filled tortillas into prepared baking sheet and sprinkle remaining Mexican cheese blend on top. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until dish is heated through and cheese topping has melted, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir sour cream with 1/3 cup ketchup in a bowl and top each serving with the sour cream sauce.

I improve the flavor by adding a small diced onion and 2 tablespoons of canned diced chilies to the hamburger. I also spray the tacos with a little oil and bake them on a cooking sheet- causing them to turn out crispy and slightly brown. I love the resulting crunch and that they can be eaten by hand once they've cooled a little. I am single and find it really convenient to make the mixture and bake one taco at a time during the week.

A little bland as written but you can always add something spicier for adults! I love the way that baking crisps them up a bit (I rubbed them in olive oil) Kids will love this! I did not add ketchup because I don't care for it but I know kids would love it. Read More

This recipe was so good! I came across this while I was looking for a simple taco recipe and decided to make this instead. I used a mixture of cheddar cheese and Mexican cheese. I added a little seasoning salt to the ground beef mixture and diced onions. I am amazed at how good this was!! This is a definite keeper. Read More

This was amazing. I had hamburger meat but didn't want a bulky heavy hamburger so when I saw this I thought I would try it. My kids LOVED it and I loved it with added salsa and avocado on top. I sent it to my sister who made it for her kids and they loved it too. Definitely on our menu. Thanks. Read More

The ketchup is a little much but it didn't stop me from eating it. Someone else mentioned salsa I think I'll try that or maybe an enchilada sauce next time instead. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This was a big hit. I made it for 8 teenage girls and they loved it. My husband loved it too. The sauce doesn't look very good - which means some of them weren't willing to try it with the sauce. But it is great with or without it. I made it exactly as written - turned out great. They were very small though- I doubled the recipe and used what I thought was "normal sized" soft tacos - but I couldn't fit a lot inside and could barely fold it around and tuck in the sides. It also made a LOT more than the serving size indicates. So they must have made bigger ones. They were still great- but next time I'll use larger tacos. Read More

This is my daughter's favorite dish with a few modifications. We call it cheeseburger burritos since they're rolled rather than folded. I use just cheddar cheese and I lightly spray the tops of the burritos with Pam before putting the cheese on top. This helps to crisp them up. We really didn't like the ketchup/sour cream combination so I serve them with regular ketchup. Read More
