Grilled Taco Burgers

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 4 persons


  • 1 lb. ground beef or chuck ($1.79)
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning ($.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!
