Taco Burgers

I've been making this recipe since July 2011, it's a family favorite.  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 is.

I mix everything inside a ziptop bag, kneading from the outside to keep my hands clean.  I've got two sets of burger presses, square and round.  They make nice uniform patties.  Sometimes I use cheddar, sometimes I use pepper jack.   On mine, I use a dollop of salsa and sour cream.  Such a nice change from plain burgers! Thank you so much to Linda L. for sharing the recipe!

Taco Burgers
Ingredients
  1 cup  finely crushed corn chips
  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
  Sandwich buns -- split
  Lettuce leaves
  Tomato slices
  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.
