Tex-Mex Cheeseburger Tacos

Tex-Mex Cheeseburger Tacos

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings, 2 tacos each 1x


Cheeseburger meets Tex-Mex meets taco night in these taco spiced cheeseburgers that are served taco style.



  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 (1 oz) package Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese, about 2 oz
  • 1 large avocado, pit removed peeled
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • salt
  • 8 Old El Paso Soft Taco Tortillas
  • sliced tomatoes
  • sliced onions
  • shredded lettuce


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef and taco seasoning. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape each into a long, thin oval, about the length of the tortillas.
  2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat and lightly oil. Cook the patties on the grill pan until cooked to your desired doneness, flipping once. Once flipped, add a slice of cheese to the top to allow to melt while it finishes cooking.
  3. Meanwhile, make the guacamole: In a bowl, mash the avocado. Stir in the green onion, cilantro and lime juice. Season to taste with salt.
  4. To assemble the tacos, add a cheeseburger to each tortilla. Top with tomatoes, onions, lettuce and guacamole. Fold over to serve.
