TACO BURGERS

It has been hot for at least two weeks, so we have done a lot of grilling, crock potting and microwaving (anything that keeps the kitchen cooler). We cooked this taco burger on the "GF Grilling Machine " but it would be even better on an outdoor grill.

2 pounds of extra lean ground beef (I use 93%)
1/2 cup of crushed corn chips
1/4 cup favorite taco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
sliced pepper Jack cheese
lettuce, tomato, avocado & onion
Mix the ground beef with the crushed corn chips, taco sauce and salt and pepper.
Shape into patties and grill over medium heat. Just before it is finished, top each burger with a slice of pepper Jack cheese and let it melt. Serve burgers on bun with fresh veggies.

What a yummy burger! I love the idea of mixing corn chips and taco sauce into the meat. We have a ton of ground beef in my house (from my grandpa's farm) so I'm always trying new burger recipes. Thanks for the idea!

What a "cool" ;) ;) idea with the crushed chips! This looks like a great burger, Coleen! And I know this sounds ignorant, but...it gets hot in Alaska?!?

I've had taco burgers before from Walmart back in the day when they had food courts. But they were ground beef hamburgers. Delicious though :-)


Your melted cheese looks so good!
