Taco Burger


I’m not sure what it is, but ever since my boys have been helping out in the vineyard, they are craving all sorts of foods in different combinations. It must be all the fresh air and hard work!

When my older son saw this on the cover of a magazine, he insisted I make it for him. He does love tacos and burgers and was intrigued with what this combination would taste like. He loved it and it was exactly what he expected.

I would also agree this was very good and definitely puts a twist on grilling night. I especially liked the crunchy chips and sour cream with the salsa.

Try this out let me know what you think.

Start by making your favorite burger, I use ground chuck and some salt to make my patties. Sprinkle each patty with some cumin, oregano and chile power before grilling.

Place guacamole on the bottom half of a hamburger bun.

Place grilled burgers on top of the guacamole and top with salsa, lettuce, cheddar, sour cream and tortilla chips.

Enjoy!

    Wow. That burger stands tall! Looks delicious. I think I would like it also. The avocado seems to be a very unique twist and will add plenty of flavor to the already flavorful meat pattie! Thanks. I will try this one soon.

    Did you ever put potato chips on your sandwich as a kid? The nachos totally remind me of that! Brilliant!

  7. I’d go for this much more than the baloney with mustard, lettuce, tomato and potato chips my friend and I used to eat in junior high. Excellent idea!

    This will definitely be a hit here at our house. I also used to eat potato chip or Frito sandwiches as a kid, so this does strike a chord with me too. Another gorgeous, finger-licking delicacy.

    This is a brilliant idea! Must try this next time we make burgers. I’ve made your pepperoni puffs last week. My kids loved them. ~Jane~

    Oh yeah! Not only would my 16 year old son love one of these, but this would be worth the calories for me too! I have a feeling that I’ll be making these soon! We make your White Castle Burger recipe all the time!

  32. I was totally thinking this would be a good one for my Culinary Covers blog. I should have had you do it for me!! Looks like a good one for a family-friendly meal. I’m all about guacamole so it looks good to me too!
