Fiesta burgers

Oh man, these were some good burgers. Having cheese (cream cheese, none the less!) put in the middle of the burgers made them extra tasty. The added kick of the taco seasoning in the meat gave extra flavor. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef-you can use whatever you have on hand or prefer.

Since it's the middle end of February, I decided to not take these out to the grill like the recipe recommends. I made them right on the stove top and they were just as tasty.

I do have to say that these make some big burgers :)

Total time: 30 minutes
Makes 4 burgers

  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup chive and onion cream cheese spread
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 1/2 cup chunky, medium salsa
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
In a small bowl, mix meat and taco seasoning. Form meat into 8 thin patties.

In another small bowl, mix together cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture onto center of a patty, then top with a second patty, sealing the edges by pinching them. Repeat with remaining patties and cheese.

Cook or grill on medium heat 7-9 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired temperature.

Place burger on the bottom bun, then top with avocado slices, salsa and the top half of the bun. Repeat with remaining burgers.
