buns, lettuce, tomato, sliced red onion, salsa, avocado/guacamole
Combine the ground beef, taco seasoning, salsa, and salt (if using) in a bowl. Mix well with a fork.
Form 4 burger patties.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Carefully place the burger patties into the hot oil, and cook 2-3 minutes per side over medium-high heat, or until cooked to your liking (the recommended temperature for ground beef is 160F). Assemble your burgers and enjoy!
Taco seasoning and salt: Check whether your taco seasoning already contains salt. If yes, you probably don't need to add more salt!
Make your own taco seasoning. Mix together:
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons sweet or hot paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ - 1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
Salsa: The salsa is optional in the hamburger meat mixture, but makes the burgers a little juicier. However, adding some salsa on TOP of the burger is absolutely delicious!!
This recipe makes 4 small burgers. If you prefer large burgers, use 1.5 lbs ground beef to make 4 burgers and increase the taco seasoning (and salsa, if using) to 3 tablespoons each.
