1/2 sweet onion
1/2 packet of taco seasoning mix (packets are usually 1.25 oz)
1lb ground chuck
1 avocado, pitted and thinly sliced
1 tomato, thinly sliced
8 dinner rolls, sliced (slider sized)
1/4 cup Queso Blanco (I made a smaller batch using just a 1/4 lb of cheese and very small amounts of the rest of the ingredients listed. It made enough to top the burgers and to have some left over for dipping chips)
- In a medium bowl, mix taco seasoning and ground chuck. Grate the onion into the meat mixture (grating the onion allows all of the wonderful juices to drip into the meat mixture). Mix it all up nicely and shape into 8 patties.
- You can cook these in a large skillet a few at a time on mid-high heat for about 2-3 minutes each side until cooked through. I like them that way to get a good sear on them. Remember not to fuss with them after putting them in the pan, so they get that sear. An easier way to make them is to line a baking sheet with heavy duty foil (double line with regular foil) and spray with cooking spray. Place patties on foil lined baking sheet and broil under high for 3-4 minutes each side or until desired doneness. Be sure to leave your oven door ajar when broiling. The foil makes clean-up a breeze!
- Place each burger on a bun and top with tomato, avocado, and cheese sauce. Enjoy!
