Súper Delicioso Mexican Cheeseburgers

You may wonder “why not just make tacos or burritos?” Even though we absolutely adore those, why not try something new? These Mexican Cheeseburgers were beyond good, they were incredibly delicious and a HUGE hit. 🤗

So good they should be served in burger joints everywhere across the land! All it takes is an easy taco seasoning mix–store bought or homemade. The recipe I use is super simple and easily adjusted to suit your own tastes.

The taco seasoning mix doesn’t have to be evenly incorporated in the ground beef. Just do the best you can.

Mexican Cheeseburgers

Taco Seasoning Mix

6 tsp. chili powder
5 tsp. paprika
4 1/2 tsp. cumin
2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 tsp. onion power
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tsp. salt (optional)

Note: 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon

For the Burgers

1 lb. ground beef
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
4 buns

Optional Toppings:

Lettuce
Sliced or mashed avocado (or make guacamole without lime juice – it ruins the flavor of the avocado)
Sliced tomatoes
Sliced onion
Sour cream
Taco sauce

For the Taco Seasoning Mix: Measure all into a small lidded container. Put the lid on tight and shake.

For Mexican Burgers: Mix 3 tbsp. into the ground beef then form into patties. The general rule is, 4 patties per pound.

Grill indoors or out, or pan fry. Cook until centers are just slightly pink. For easier clean up, cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the mostly cooked burgers on it.

Top with slices of sharp cheddar cheese. (I broke the pieces in half and made a cross so most of the cheese wouldn’t be lost over the sides.) Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is nicely melted.

Place on buns and pile on any additional toppings as desired.
