Years ago I worked at a little drive inn that served the best taco burger I had ever eaten. I didn't get the recipe for their taco meat but i have made mine as close as I could get it. I still like to make these occasionally because they taste so good and bring back so many good memories.

Ingredients

1 lb
ground chuck
1 tsp
minced garlic
1 pkg
taco seasoning
1 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1/2 c
water
4
corn tortillas, fried flat and slightly crispy
4 c
lettuce, shredded
16 slice
tomatoes, thinly sliced, 2 slices per layer
1 medium
onion, chopped
2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
4
hamburger buns

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crumble ground chuck into a large skillet heated to medium low. I use a potato masher to break up the meat. That way there will be no large chunks of meat.
2
Add garlic, 1 tablespoon chopped onion and taco seasoning to the meat. Stir occasionally until the meat is done.
3
Add flour and combine until any excess liquid from the meat is absorbed. Add the water and combine well.
4
Cook until the mixture thickens a little. This will help the meat mixture hold together a little bit. You’ll understand this step once you start to eat your burger.
5
Place a heaping tablespoon of meat mixture on the bottom of each bun. Spread out the meat till it covers the bun. Then layer with cheese, chopped onion, lettuce, tomato and 1 crisp corn tortilla. Now place another spoonful of the meat mixture, cheese, onion, lettuce, tomato and then put the top of the bun on top of everything.
6
This great served with garnishes of guacamole, sour cream and your favorite salsa. Don't forget plenty of napikins...Enjoy!
