These Taco Bacon Cheeseburgers could not be more perfect for your summer grilling. Packed with great flavor and stacked nice and tall, everyone loves them!
It’s always a pleasure partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new Mexican-style recipes. I’ve developed a giant cheeseburger that is so flavorful, it’s about to become your new favorite burger. Love having Old El Paso taco seasoning on hand for simple weeknight dinners. We use it in so many great recipes.
Isn’t grilling season the best? So fun spending time outside, swimming and grilling with family and friends. Even though it’s so warm in Arizona, we still take advantage of this great time of year! Bring on the grilling recipes!
Simple ingredients to get started!
Add the taco seasoning to the ground beef.
A nice pinch of salt and pepper too.
Form into four patties and place onto a hot grill. Indoor or outdoor works just fine.
Cook for 4-5 minutes each side and flip.
During the last two minutes of grilling, top with cheese.
Toast your buns 🙂
Mix more taco seasoning with mayonnaise.
Spread onto cut side of buns.
Layer with lettuce leaf and burger.
Add tomato slices, cilantro leaves and bacon slices.
Close with top lid and get ready to dig in!
Definitely shareable 🙂 Enjoy!
