Taco Burgers

    I made these tonight for dinner and everyone really enjoyed them, great change of pace from your everyday burgers! We added salsa and a smear of sour cream on the bun. Will definitely be making again!

    Love Love Love taco burgers. They do get messy if you make them with chopped taco meat. This is a great art solution. The only thing I'd add is mustard(I know it sounds gross) like my favorite taco burger spot. Taco Tia YUM!!! No salsa, the taco spice is all we can handle. Yah, we're gringos. ;~)
