Taco burgers

(originally made 7/2011)

Next to chicken, the thing we eat most around here is ground beef.    Jake's an odd duck- he'll eat tacos til the cows come home, but he is 50/50 on eating burgers.    I thought this would be a great meal to please everyone and it really was.   I mix everything inside a ziptop bag, kneading from the outside to keep my hands clean, and I love my burger presses.     I had no cheddar cheese on hand, so I used American on theirs.   On mine, I used a dollop of salsa and sour cream.     Such a nice change from plain burgers and definitely something I'd make again.

Taco Burgers

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                cup  finely crushed corn chips (used fritos)
  1           envelope  taco seasoning (used mild)
  1         tablespoon  dried minced onion
  1                     egg -- lightly beaten
  1 1/2         pounds  ground beef
  6             slices  cheddar cheese (used American)
                        Sandwich buns -- split
                        Lettuce leaves (omitted)
                        Tomato slices (omitted)
                        Salsa -- optional

    In a large bowl, combine the corn chips, taco seasoning onion and egg. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties. Broil or grill until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.
    Top each burger with a cheese slice; cook just until cheese begins to melt. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and salsa if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
