Taco Burger Tips:

  • Meat Thermometer – Use an instant read meat thermometer to check internal temperature. Make sure that the beef is cooked to a safe temperature before eating.  
  • Mixing Ingredients – Be careful not to over-mix the beef or the burgers will be tough.  Just mix with your hands until just combined in a medium bowl. 
  • Change Seasoning – Fee free to change the seasoning. Mix in garlic powder or chili powder.
  • Hamburger Patty – We like to make the hamburger patties about the same size. I usually make them about 1 inch thick so they cook evenly and about the same time.

Topping Ideas:

The toppings are endless when making your Taco Burger. These are some of our favorites.

  • Cheese – We used cheddar cheese, but you can easily use different flavors. We recommend pepper jack cheese or Colby Monterrey Jack Cheese.
  • Sour Cream – This creamy topping is perfect topped on the Taco Burger.
  • Guacamole – Make a delicious homemade guacamole or use store bought for a tasty topping.
  • Pico de Gallo – Diced tomatoes, onions, and cilantro makes this a delicious topping for the taco burgers.
  • Diced Avocado – We love the healthy benefits of avocado. Instead of making guacamole, top with diced avocado.
