  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

How to Make Taco Burgers

  • In a large bowl add the meat, oregano, cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Gently mix the meat and seasonings to combine.
  • Form the burgers into .25 pound patties.  
  • Reduce heat on the grill to medium, abou 375 degrees. Place your burgers on the grill and cook each side about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook another 4 minutes. With 1-2 minutes left in cooking, add the cheese.
  • Once cooked to your liking, remove the burgers. Let rest and begin to assemble the buns and toppings. 
  • To the buns add the pico de gallo and guacamole. Add your burgers to the buns! Eat and enjoy.


Note 1: my pico de gallo takes just a few minutes to make and my family will highly suggest you make it as a topping for a great taco burger.
Note 2: my Guacamole recipe is on its way! Another must have topping. A store bought guacamole is also fine as a topping! 
Note 3: Cabot Cheese is my personal favorite. The cheese melts perfectly on the burger.
Note 4: A personal choice on the brioche roll We just love the flavor with the taco burgers. Use your personal favorite bun!
Note 5: The nutritional value is strictly calculating the burger. Does not include the bun, pico, or guacamole. Those values will have to be added as you use them.
