Grilled Taco Burgers

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On July 1, 2010 @ 4:16 pm In Beef,Grill | 8 Comments

So I’m just not that into plain burgers these days.

After buying up all sorts of spices and making myself several cups of homemade taco seasoning [5], I figured the least I could do was use some to make taco burgers!  This is not an exact recipe…so I shall give you how much you should use per pound of meat.

And don’t forget…You can still enter my Weber One Touch Charcoal Grill Giveaway [6]!  If you’d like an additional entry for today, head on over there and leave a comment with your favorite way to eat a burger!!!

Here’s one of my new favorite burgers…


1 lb. ground beef or chuck ($1.79)
2 Tbsp taco seasoning [5] ($.10)
1/2 onion, grated ($.15)
2 garlic cloves, crushed ($.10)
1 tsp salt

1/4 cup salsa ($.25)
4 slices pepper jack cheese ($.75) I omitted to keep the meal dairy-free.


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl, then shape into 4 patties.  Grill until cooked as you like them. As they are finishing up their grilling time, add a spoonful or two of salsa and top with the cheese.  Move the burgers to a spot on the grill that is not directly over the fire and let cook until cheese melts over the salsa and the burger.

Serve on a bun (or bread) with some yummy side dishes!

Cost $3.14 per 4 patties
