Corey's Taco Burgers

This is my son's original burger creation. He loves Tex-Mex stuff and he loves burgers, so he combined the two to make this fun recipe for the grill. When he wants them a bit spicier, he adds a small can of chopped green chiles to the meat before making the patties. Yum!


1 pound lean ground beef, divided into four patties
Homemade Taco Seasoning
Salsa (here's our favorite, but you can always use store-bought if you prefer)
chopped lettuce
cheddar jack sliced cheese
hamburger buns (can use store-bought or make your own)

Guacamole Ranch Sauce:
1/2 cup reduced fat ranch salad dressing
1/4 cup Wholly Guacamole (or you can use half of a mashed avocado)
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
Juice from 1 lime
1/8 t cumin 
(To make the sauce, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and refrigerate to let the flavors meld.)
Form the ground beef into four patties. Sprinkle both sides of each burger with the taco seasoning. Grill to desired doneness.
Make Guacamole Ranch Sauce according to above directions.
To assemble the burgers, place a burger on a hamburger bun, top with cheese, salsa, and lettuce. Spread sauce on the bun top. Eat and enjoy!
