Have You Tried Taco Burgers Yet? Well, Son, YOU SHOULD!

These are a great burger to entertain with, just because they are so easy to put together, and they are a lot more fun than just a traditional burger. I couldn’t ever get my son to eat a hamburger when it was just a big hunk of meat. When I made these, he actually had two! I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t tell him about all the veggies stuffed in there and he didn’t ask. I didn’t tell my husband either because he probably would have passed as well. What don’t they know won’t hurt them though right?

This is one way of getting your kids to eat their spinach… guaranteed!



1 1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 pkg Old El Paso taco seasoning mix
1 c chopped fresh baby spinach
1 c Kraft shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
1 egg
1 can(s) Hunt’s diced tomatoes, 15 oz.
1/2 can(s) diced green chilies (small 4 oz. can )
1/2 c diced yellow onion
1 tsp salt
2 clove garlic (crushed)


Mix beef, spinach, garlic, egg, and taco seasoning together in a large bowl. Measure into patties and cook in skillet until well done.
When patties are cooked put some of the cheese on top of the patties (still in skillet) and cover with skillet lid for about 20 seconds or until melted.
To make the salsa mix together the tomatoes, chilies, salt, and onion together and cook on med-high for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and put in a blender. Only blend for a couple of seconds. The sauce should have very few chunks.
Put the burger on a hamburger bun and add about a tbsp of the Picante. Eat and enjoy!
Seriously, you can garnish these taco burgers with anything that you want. As you can see by my picture that is exactly what I’ve done.


Quick Tip: Do a mix of ground beef and Mexican chorizo.
