Zesty Taco Burger

Zesty Turkey Burger

Mouth watering Zesty Taco Burger Recipe

A perfect Sunday for many sports lovers typically involves their favorite sports team and favorite game day foods. This recipe is something to help change up your usual game day burgers and cause a reaction of cheers and screams. I can’t guaranty it will make your family and friends less cranky if their team losses, but it won’t hurt to try.

What happens when Tacos and Burgers collide

This patty recipe reminds me of everything we all already love about tacos made into a delicious burger, with a sauce that delivers a punch of flavor and spice. For that beautiful zesty sauce use your favorite taco seasoning of choice mixed with sour cream, but if you are looking for a taco seasoning that will really wow your taste buds use Mamma Mia’s Beer Taco seasoning mix by the original Seefurth family. Just click on the link to purchase or find a local store where you can buy this perfect blend of seasonings. I originally found this taco seasoning at my local Whole Foods grocery store.

This damn delicious Taco Burger has tons of black beans and cheddar combined right into the delicious patties. For the toppings, add lettuce, tomato and finished off with that zesty taco sauce that you made.

The perfect patty, simple toppings, zesty sauce and a perfect bun sounds like my kind of Taco Burger whether it’s game day or not!

For indoor grilling I love to use my Breville Panini Grill
