Delicious, juicy hamburgers with a kick from taco seasoning! These burgers are piled with homemade guacamole, pico de gallo and lettuce and served on a toasted bun!
I bet you thought your burgers couldn’t get any better! That’s until you met this Taco Burger. I’m introducing a brand new twist on your favorite burger. It’s so juicy and has tons of flavor from the taco seasoning, guacamole and pico de gallo.
Seriously. This thing is mind blowing.
I have a serious obsession for Pico de Gallo and Guacamole, so I’m always trying to come up with new ways to enjoying them. Oh, trust me I enjoy them with chips and by the spoonful just fine, but I always feel like I should mix it up and enjoy them in new ways.
That’s why I created this delicious Grilled Taco Burger.
In fact my little bro is on a low carb diet and I treated him to one of these “naked” and he had it gone in approximately four bites! I’m going to safely assume that he liked it!
In his words, eating at my house is an “adventure”. I like to think that he enjoys his adventures it’s my house 😉
I actually was sitting outside on my front step while grilling these taco burgers when he happened to drive by on his way to plant a field by my house. When I saw him go by I had a lightbulb moment and quickly texted him to see if he had ate.
So I called him, he actually answered which is rare. Usually I have to use my husband’s phone to get him to answer. I think he still thinks I’m just his pesky big sister.
Here I was trying to feed the guy!
He accepted my offer to bring him dinner. When I was asking him if he was excited for his taco burger he said, “I’ll try anything once.”
Little faith he has in me!
When he bit into the burger he closed his eyes and I knew I had won!
Next time maybe he’ll answer his phone a little quicker!
Ingredients Needed to Make Taco Burgers
- Ground beef
- Taco seasoning
- Sharp cheddar cheese
- Pico de Gallo
- Hamburger buns
How to Make Taco Burgers
First, you want to preheat your grill to medium heat or about 350 degrees F.
Next you want to mix up your burgers. Combine beef, taco seasoning, salsa and cheese in a mixing bowl. Shape into 6-8 patties depending on how thick you want them.
Throw the patties on the grill for about 4-5 minutes then flip them. Cook an additional 4-5 minutes. They are finished cooking when they reach 160 degrees F internally.
I prefer a toasted bun so when my burgers are grilling I throw my buns on the grill butter side down and toast them up!
Then you want to assemble your burgers. Lettuce on the bottom, burger, guacamole, and pico de gallo!
