Yowsa. These taco burgers bring the Mexican-ish flavors big-time. The patty tastes a lot like taco meat. The tortilla chips taste like a taco shell. And the guacamole cools it all down… until you get slapped by a last hit of hot salsa. Really tasty. And messy. I like messy. Messy things are almost always the tastiest.

Tender Patties That Need A Little Love

The patties are very moist, which means you have to be very careful with them on the grill or they’ll fall apart. It really all depends on your salsa. If you use a thin, runny salsa, you might want to add a binder (such as crushed tortilla chips or masa) to the meat before forming it into patties. Be kind to your taco burgers and they’ll reward you with great flavors.

I like to use a burger press when I make burgers. It, in combination with some patty papers, enables me to crank out a whole bunch of equally-sized burger patties in no time at all with little cleanup.
