Stuffed Taco Burgers

Sheri Zarnick


My family loves Tacos and Burgers, so I combined the two for an Awesome Summer Grilled Dinner. You can use your favorite Taco toppings for your Burgers. Since all of our tastes are different here at my house I just put out separate bowls with different toppings and my own favorite sauce for these burgers.

How to Make Stuffed Taco Burgers


  1. In a large mixing bowl add ground chuck, minced onion and crushed Doritos. In a separate bowl add beaten egg and taco seasoning. mix well and pour over meat and mix well.
  2. Shape 12 balls from the meat to make 12 4inch round and 1/4" thick patties.
    Assemble patties by placing 6 patties on wax papered cookie sheet.
  3. Top patties with one slice of cheddar cheese, cut 3" circle to fit just inside of patty. top with tomato slice, pepper slices (2 on each patty), and top with pepper jack cheese slice cut to 3" circle. Top each with the other beef patties to cover toppings, pinch all around the edge to seal the burger shut.
  4. Place on Grill medium high heat, and cook 10 minutes, 5 minutes on each side. or until it is done enough for your taste.
  5. Place on buns and top with desired toppings.
    * I like to top mine with extra shredded cheese, black olives, Sauteed onions. Wrap in foil and place on the grill for an extra 5 minutes with the top on the grill. Then I open the foil and finish topping my burger then add my special sauce.
  6. My special sauce; Add the miracle whip, thousand Island dressing and horseradish together with the Tabasco sauce. Mix well.
