Blackstone Taco Burger Recipe:

Blackstone burgers are one of my favorite recipes to cook on the griddle. The burgers always come out perfectly cooked with a crispy texture and juicy on the inside.

This recipe for taco burgers takes your burgers to the next level. The taco seasoning and salsa provide the burger with so much flavor. If you love taco recipes, try our Blackstone street tacos or Blackstone ground beef tacos.

We love to top our burgers with salsa, lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with a side of chips for a complete meal idea.

How to Cook Burger indoors:

Yes, you can make this taco burger recipe on the stove. We recommend using a large skillet or a cast iron skillet. Using the cast iron skillet is very similar to cooking on the griddle.

Place taco burger in a skillet with oil and cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes per side. Add your favorite topping and serve.

What is the best oil to Use on Blackstone Griddle:

Use any oil with a high smoke point. Vegetable oil, canola oil, coconut oil or avocado oil will all work great in this recipe.

What to Serve with Taco Burgers:

There are many different sides you can serve with Taco Burgers.

  • Chip and Salsa – We like to serve with tortilla chips and salsa for an easy side dish.
  • Blackstone French FriesThese Blackstone French Fries are the perfect side dish and come out perfectly crispy every time.
  • Guacamole – I like to serve my taco burger with a side of guacamole. It would be delicious to top the burger with as well.

Taco Burger Tips:

  • Cooking Hamburger Patties – Heat the griddle to medium heat so that taco patties cook through and evenly. Cook burgers until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  • Smash Burger Recipe – This taco burger recipe is the ultimate smash burger recipe. Full of taco flavor combined with a ground beef.
  • Juicy Burger – Allow you burger to cook on the grill with very little flipping. I try to only flip the burger patties once to create a juicy flavorful burger.
  • Make Ahead of Time – You can easily make your hamburger balls ahead of time. Then place in the refrigerator until ready to grill.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
