Guacamole Taco Burgers

Burgers spiced up with taco seasonings, cheddar cheese, guacamole and tortilla chips! Whether you’re craving tacos, burgers or spicy guacamole and chips – all three worlds collide making the choice easy!

You know when you take those first few bites of something only to realize how good it is so you eat slower to make it last longer, savoring every bite and finally when you get to the end you still feel really sad? This burger is all of that and more.

Normally I like to keep my burgers plain and let the toppings do the talking (unless it’s a veggie burger than anything goes) but I made an exception for this one. I couldn’t resist combining the two and couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

I underestimate guacamole all the time. So rich and fatty, it really makes the burger special. The cool, creamy texture against the spiciness of the burger with the gooey cheese and the chewy cornbread roll defies deliciousness. It’s the superhero of burgers.

Seriously.

Tall and messy, eating one is an adventure worth taking.

Guacamole Burgers

Burgers spiced up with taco seasonings, cheddar cheese, guacamole and tortilla chips! Worlds collide.

Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef (I like sirloin)
1/4 cup onion, finely diced
1 + 1/2 teaspoons chile powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed between fingertips
1/2 teaspoon cumin
sea or kosher salt and fresh black pepper
4 slices sharp cheddar or monterey jack cheese
4 hamburger buns
Guacamole:
2 avocados
1 jalapeno pepper, diced, seeds and ribs removed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise or sour cream
1/4 cup tomatoes, diced
coarse salt and fresh black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
!Toppings:
tortilla chips
tomato slices
shredded lettuce

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl using a fork combine the ground beef, onion, chile powder, oregano and cumin together. Form into 4 equal-sized patties. Season each side with salt and pepper. Cook them however you like to cook your burgers - I use a George grill. During the last minute or two melt the cheese over top.
  2. While the burgers are cooking mash the avocado and mix with the jalapeno lemon, mayo, tomatoes and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve the burgers on buns with generous dollops of quacamole and any toppings you like.
