Taco Burgers


Burgers with a taco twist. I like to serve these taco burgers with sangria and a side of nachos.

5 burgers


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning

  • 5 slices pepper Jack cheese

  • 5 hamburger buns, split

  • ¼ cup sour cream, or to taste

  • ¼ cup salsa, or to taste

  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tomato, sliced

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • ½ onion, sliced


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Mix ground beef and taco seasoning together in a bowl with your hands. Separate mixture into 5 equal portions. Form into patties.

  3. Cook patties on the preheated grill for 5 minutes. Flip, top with pepper Jack cheese slices, and continue to grill until no longer pink or to desired doneness, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a patty should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  4. Spread sour cream and salsa on buns. Add patties; top with cilantro, tomato, avocado, and onion.

Cook's Note:

You can use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef, if preferred.
