My family loves the taste of tacos, but I dislike the mess! So I developed these burgers as a tasty but tidy alternative.—Linda Logan, Warren, Ohio


  • 1 cup finely crushed corn chips
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 6 slices cheddar cheese
  • Sandwich buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Salsa, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the corn chips, taco seasoning, onion and egg. Crumble beef over mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 6 patties.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat (or broil 4 in. from the heat) for 7-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°.
  3. Top each burger with a cheese slice; heat just until cheese begins to melt. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and, if desired, salsa.
