Taco Burgers

Hubby's been wondering why I haven't been making him burgers lately. When I told him the grilling season is over, he wasn't two happy. He loves hot, juicy burgers so last week I made them two nights in a row and he was very satisfied. The first night I made Cowboy Burgers and the next I made these taco burgers. There is salsa and spices mixed into the ground beef which not only makes them juicy but packed with flavor too. If you enjoy taco's as much as my family does, these burgers are going to become a huge favorite in your house too!

What You Need:

1lb ground beef
1/4 c chunky salsa
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
Salt and Pepper
1 c shredded cheddar cheese or 4 slices
4 slices tomato
sour cream
4 hamburger buns

What To Do:

Preheat a grill or pan over high heat. Meanwhile, combine the ground beef with the salsa, cumin, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper Make into 4 patties.

To do this quickly and easily, make 4 even balls out of the ground meat and place them onto a cutting board. Take a small dessert or salad plate and use it to press the burgers into a patty. It makes even round patties every time! Don't forget to press an indentation into one side of each patty to help keep them flat. Because these patties have salsa in them, they are going to be a little more fragile then you're used too so be careful when handling and cooking them. Cook your patties to your desired done-ness, only flipping once. Top each with the cheddar cheese during the last minute of cooking to melt it. Top each bun with a burger, lettuce, tomato and a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
