Burger Tacos With Chipotle Mayo

Burger Tacos With Chipotle Mayo are perfect for Cinco de Mayo celebrations with your friends or taco night enjoyed around your kitchen table with your family. Now you are probably wondering…is it a burger or is it a taco, actually it is both. A burger taco is something you might envision having on a street corner in one of the border towns on either side of the US/Mexico border. While not really Mexican, it is a combination of the two country’s food cultures. Think of it as a Mexican hamburger. Imagine a juicy beef patty that is seasoned with Mexican spices and fresh cilantro stuffed into a warm flour tortilla. It is then topped with fresh pico de gallo, shredded lettuce, Jalapeño jack cheese and drizzled with chipotle mayo. One bite and it is like a fiesta of flavors in your mouth.

Burger Tacos With Chipotle Mayo

Serves 2 (2 tacos per person) adjust the recipe accordingly.

Burgers

  • 3/4 lb. ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. chipotle Tabasco*
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place the ground beef in a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients for the burger patties. Combine the ingredients but don’t over mix or burgers will be tough. Divide the mixture into two portions and form into patties. Make a depression in the center of each patty to keep them flat when cooked. Cook in a skillet or grill pan until desired doneness. Remove to a plate and let rest for a couple of minutes then cut each burger in half.

Tacos

  • 4 flour tortillas (6 inch taco size)
  • 2 cooked burgers, each cut in half
  • shredded lettuce
  • shredded Jalapeño jack cheese
  • pico de gallo made with chopped fresh tomatoes, onion, jalapeño peppers and cilantro seasoned with lemon juice, salt and pepper
  • chipotle mayo made with 5 Tbsp. mayonnaise mixed with 5 tsp. chipotle Tabasco* and 1 tsp. lime juice, salt and pepper to taste

Warm flour tortillas in a dry skillet over medium high heat for about 30 seconds on each side. Remove and wrap in foil to keep warm if not using right away.

To assemble the tacos, place one half of a burger cut side down in a folded tortilla and top with shredded lettuce, cheese and pico de gallo. Drizzle with chipotle mayo and serve.

*If you can’t find chipotle Tabasco in your area, you can substitute canned chipotles in adobo sauce and adjust the amount to suit your taste.

****

This recipe is just a suggestion of how to build your burger tacos. Use your imagination when it comes to creating your own version. Depending on your taste, make your burger taco as mild or as spicy as you like. If you don’t want to make fresh pico de gallo, by all means use your favorite jarred salsa. For my dinner, I went to the Mexican side of the border and served an avocado and tomato salad with my tacos but you could be thinking of the US side of the border and serve your burger tacos with french fries or fried onion rings. One thing that I know will go great with this meal, no matter which side of the border you are thinking about, is an ice-cold Dos Equis beer or a freshly shaken margarita served in a salt rimmed glass with a squeeze of fresh lime. If you a planning a Mexican meal, you might also like one of the following dishes.

  1. Looks delicious Karen. The chipotle mayonnaise is a must for us. Happy Cinco de Mayo.
    Sam

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sam, If you go by my husband’s remarks while eating these, they are as good as they look. :) Thank you for your nice compliment and wish.

  2. bakeritalia says:

    Umm YUM! Those tacos looks so good, I want one…but I’m in the wrong country! I love, love tacos and it doesn’t matter if they are fish, pulled pork or beef, they always taste fantastic
    DELICIOUS!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Camilla, I’m happy to know that you like tacos like as much as I do. Yes, finding tacos in Italy or even the ingredients to make your own would be difficult. This will be a dish you will have to wait to try until you return home. Thank you for your nice compliment.

      • bakeritalia says:

        I have just come back from downtown Florence and I saw black beans for 5 euro a tin and then tortillas for wait for it….6.50 euro for 10!!! Wow, I know what I’ll be eating when I go home

      • Karen says:

        I wouldn’t have thought you would find them in downtown Florence. It sounds like your timing was perfect. :D

  3. You speak to my heart with these marvelous foods.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Tin Man, I’m glad that you enjoyed the post. After growing up in Texas, it would be hard not to love Mexican food. It is difficult to find good restaurants here in New England, so I do cook it often.

  4. Karen, these look so delicious. :)

  5. What a fantastic twist on classic tacos! I have a few of quinoa patties left in the fridge..now I know what I am going to have for the lunch tomorrow :-) Thanks for sharing, Karen.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Angie, I’m glad you like this twist on tacos. Your quinoa patties would be terrific in place of beef in this recipe…enjoy your lunch. I appreciate your nice compliment, thank you.

  6. Karen, I love these burger tacos. I do believe they’ll be on my table tonight! Thanks

  7. What wonderful recipes, Karen. I love Mexican food and don’t eat or cook it enough. These will inspire me :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kay, I’m glad you like the recipes and that they will give you inspiration to cook Mexican food a little more often. Thank you for your nice compliment as always.

  8. Monique says:

    My kids would LOVE these!

  9. David says:

    Ah, Karen – I see we share a love of Mexican food! When are you coming to Tucson so we can take you to some incredible places that I know you will love? I love your burger tacos ideas. We just had Middle Eastern kabab-burger dogs the other day. Had leftover hot dog rolls, and ground beef… made a Middle Eastern spice mix to go in the meet, and a yogurt sauce for topping. You know – I really miss the New England hot dog buns. No one here even knows they exist. So much better for griddling! (Obviously, griddling is not a verb recognized by anyone but us foodies!)

    • Karen says:

      Hi David, I am so envious of your wonderful Mexican restaurants. My test of a good Mexican restaurant is their tamales and as you know, they are almost impossible to find in New England. I’m surprised that New England hot dog buns aren’t sold everywhere, they make so much sense. I’m glad you like my burger tacos, thank you!

  10. Debra says:

    Sounds delish and I actually have all the ingredients! I love your posts as well. The pictures are beautiful and I love the way you write and the recipes are wonderful. Thank you for such beautiful work.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Debra, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your lovely compliment. I’m happy that you enjoy my posts, photos and recipes. I really appreciate your kind words. :)

  11. Even when I’m not hungry your posts make me hungry. This sounds wonderful whether someone wants to call it a burger or a taco. :-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Judy, I appreciate your lovely compliment about my posts. I thought about what I would call this recipe. I decided to go with what it was, a burger and a taco equals a burger taco. :D

  12. savourytable says:

    These have my name written all over them. It it has a Mexican flavor, I’m all over it. My family will love them.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Karen, I know we like the same kinds of food so I think you and your family will enjoy these. Thank you for your nice compliment. :)

  13. What a great idea. I love your conversion.

  14. Mad Dog says:

    I’m not normally a burger fan, but with those spices and chipotle mayo I could become a convert :-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Mad Dog, I remember when I made the burger stuffed with blue cheese that you said you weren’t a burger fan. The nice thing about this recipe is that the burger could be exchanged for a lovely piece of fried fish or chicken. I don’t know if I can convert a Mad Dog into liking the texture of a ground beef patty but I think I might get you to improvise and like this taco. :D

  15. Larry says:

    I really like this idea Karen and your version sounds outstanding. The other items look delicious as well

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Larry, I’m glad you like my idea of a burger taco…I do think you would like it. I appreciate your nice compliment about the recipe and my other Mexican dishes. :_

  16. OllyTemur says:

    this would absolutely indulging :D need to try this

  17. Wow! It looks like you are planning a real fiesta! Lots of good things to eat.

  18. Oh yum, Karen! These look great! I actually like this idea more because I don’t like ground beef texture and prefer a solid mass :) Going to make these next time kids want tacos. They kind of remind me of kebab rolls that I make for the kids, just have Indian spices instead.
    Have a great Sunday, Karen!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Nazneen, I’m glad you like the idea and I hope you and your family will enjoy the tacos. Your kebab rolls with Indian spices sound like they would be good as well. I had a nice weekend, I hope you did as well.

  19. afracooking says:

    Wow – I wish I could sink my teeth into these. They look so inviting!

  20. kitchenriffs says:

    I’ve never used chipotle Tabasco — definitely have to give that a try. And I need to try this recipe, too! Never thought of putting a burger in a taco, but I love the idea. Fun stuff — thanks.

    • Karen says:

      Hi John, You definitely have to get some of the chipotle Tabasco. Anytime you want a smokey spice in a dish, I think you will enjoy this condiment. I’m glad you like this idea…it was delicious if I do say so myself. :)

  21. Penny says:

    What a great idea Karen. They are also beautiful to look at. Can just imagine how they taste. Will have to try this when the kids come for a visit.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Penny, I’m glad you like the idea of the burger tacos. I hope you and your family enjoy them…my husband and I thought they were great. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  22. ela hester says:

    Cinco or no cinco, I could eat your beautiful tacos anytime! :) ela

  23. A_Boleyn says:

    That’s an amazing assortment of dishes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. My only suggestion would be a glass or can of Tecate beer instead of the Dos Equuis but that’s just a personal choice.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Boleyn, I’m glad you like my suggestions for dishes for Cinco de Mayo, thank you. A Tecate beer would be good as well. :)

  24. Yvo says:

    It might be because I’m really hungry, but I’m SO craving Mexican food right now. Every single recipe looks simply delicious, and it will be difficult to choose which one to eat first!

  25. Burger Tacos! I’m luvin’ it Karen. My mind is flooded with possibilities but yes, that Chipotle Mayo is a must! Thanks for sharing, Karen…

  26. Thank you for the lovely idea. I happen to have some tortillas leftover as we made pulled pork filled tortillas on May Day (they were delicious) but this could be the next thing on the menul.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Laila, I’m always happy to know when I can inspire one of my readers. It sounds like this recipe is a good way for you to use your leftover tortillas. I hope you and your family will enjoy the the burger tacos.

  27. Your tacos do look very good… and I don’t even eat meat! But I do have some chipotle peppers (a Valentine’s day present – don’t ask…), so I just need a substitute for the burgers and this will make a perfect meal.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Sarah, for your nice compliment. Since you don’t eat meat, you could use a veggie burger in place of the ground beef. I think you would really enjoy the tacos that way. Chipotle peppers for Valentine’s day…my mind is thinking hot, hot, hot. :D

  28. Liz Posmyk of Bizzy Lizzy's Good Things says:

    Ok, being a Hungarian Australian, I can’t get my head around Cinco de Mayo celebrations… must go google it again! But your recipe, now that’s my kind of food! Lovely.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Liz, I’m happy to know that you like my recipe for the burger tacos. I don’t blame you for not getting your head around Cinco de Mayo as it is not really celebrated in Mexico. Here in the US, it is mainly a fun day to enjoy Mexican food and drink margaritas. :D

  29. Eha says:

    As Mexican food has only really become popular here during the past few years this very appetizing take should have been ‘strange’ to me – yet I do use all the ingredients :) ! Also realize that I have done exactly the same by making ‘Indian hamburgers’ wrapped in the sub-Continent’s delightful flatbreads. Have learned from other blogs how popular the 5th of May celebrations are in the US . . . interesting to find out how this came to be . . .

    • Karen says:

      Hi Eha, I can understand why Mexican food is not that popular in Australia. There are many cuisines around the world that have a dish that might be thought of as similar to tacos. :)

  30. Ngan R. says:

    Oh my, these look awesome. I love both burgers and tacos so this is just a combination of my favorite things. Great spices and seasonings in the meat! I want to make mini versions for finger foods at my next party – thanks for giving me the idea of burger tacos!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ngan, I’m happy that you like the burger tacos. I was just like you…loving both burgers and tacos and decided to combine them in one easy and delicious meal. I think mini versions of the recipe would be great for a party. Thank you for your nice compliment. :)

  31. ohlidia says:

    Oh, those burger tacos look fabulous Karen! I could just sink my teeth into one of those right about now. Or two! :-)

    • Karen says:

      So nice to see you out and about in the blogging world again, Lidia. I’m glad that you like the burger tacos, thank you!

  32. Lots of new recipes to try…love the Mexican food and these look so good. Thanks Karen as I was looking for some recipes tomorrow. I miss the celebration when I lived in Arizona. :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Donna, I’m glad you like my suggestions for dishes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo or any day that you want a nice Mexican meal. Thank you!

  33. hotlyspiced says:

    I’m such a fan of tacos and these are about the best I’ve seen. I love the sound of the mayo. I find tacos are brilliant for gathering family and friends around a table xx

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your lovely compliment, Charlie…it is very much appreciated. The chipotle mayo really makes the burger tacos zing.

  34. reggiorif says:

    These Bruger Taco look incredible. Karen, you know how to spoil your family ;) – This recipe could be a great dish to make for my friends – love it!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice compliment, Didi. I think the burger tacos would be a nice dish to make for your friends…we really enjoyed them.

  35. I never met any Mexican food I didn’t relish! This is a very unique take on a taco, and quite fun, I think. I love the chipotle mayo! We had a nice Mexican dinner out last night for my brother’s birthday. He chose the restaurant and we all enjoyed. :-) Burger tacos are new to me, but a creative and great idea. I know we’d love them!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Debra, You do live in a state that has good Mexican food, that is for sure. I’m glad you like my twist on tacos. With the chipotle mayo, they were delicious. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  36. This is the perfect melting pot of traditions. Love that chipolte mayo and your toppings. A very messy but delicious eats. It must have been amazing living in Texas and eating all the traditional Mexican dishes…Wishing you a very happy Conco de Mayo!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bam, I’m happy that you like the burger tacos. Actually, they really aren’t messy to eat compared to ground beef tacos in crispy shells. I also liked the burger with the tortilla instead of a bun…not so much bread that way. :)

  37. This burger-taco combo is fantastic, delicious recipe :D

    Cheers
    Choc Chip Uru

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Uru, for your nice compliment. I know that you don’t eat meat but this recipe could easily be made with a veggie burger. :)

  38. Delicious looking tacos Karen. Feliz Ciinco de Mayo a tu! I must make something like this for our dinner tonight to celebrate the day!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice wish and compliment, Teresa. I’m happy to know that you like the tacos. I hope you celebrate the day with lots of fun and delicious food.

  39. Norma Chang says:

    Brilliant idea. Could upgrade a plain regular burger by serving it using your method.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Norma, I’m glad you like the idea and you are right…if you didn’t want the Mexican spices in the burger you could leave them out.

  40. A couple of summers ago we visited our son in Mexico City. So much good food! The fancy mole restaurants, but also the street food! All these recipes look incredibly yummy.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jason, You must have really enjoyed your stay in Mexico City. With you son as a guide, I’m sure he knew all the good spots for food. I’m happy that you like my selection of Mexican recipes and appreciate your nice compliment. Take care of yourself and feel better soon.

  41. DeDivahDeals says:

    This looks awesome – Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Antionette, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. I’m glad you like the tacos. I hope you had a nice day as well.

  42. They look super delicious!

  43. Oh so delicious! Your photographs made my mouth water. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

  44. Happy Cinco! :) This looks delicious and the chipotle mayo must give the tacos a really great kick!

  45. This reminds me how my mom would make us tacos when my siblings and I were little kids. She would make meat patties so it wouldn’t crumble out of or tacos! I love the seasons you put in your meat! Great recipe. Thanks for bringing up some great memories :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sandra, I’m glad that my recipe brought back memories of your mother’s cooking. Using a patty instead of crumbled meat definitely makes it an easy way to eat tacos without the mess. I appreciate your nice compliment, thank you!

  46. Now I know you’re looking out for me Karen…every time I mention tacos as a possible meal he does the ‘eh…maybe not” thing. I thing it’s because he tried some at the cafeteria at work which just didn’t sit very well – ok he said the were gawd awful! But, now I can tell him it’s a burger! You’re brilliant – keep these ideas coming.

    • Karen says:

      Your so funny Diane, I’m glad that I can supply you with a way to get your husband to eat tacos. :D Tell your husband it is a burger…a Mexican hamburger. If he is anything like my husband, he will love them.

  47. It looks absolutely mouthwatering Karen! I love Mexican and Tex-Mex food!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katerina, I’m happy to know that you like Mexican and Tex-Mex food as much as I do and like the recipe. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  48. Sophie33 says:

    Waw Karen! These beef tacos look fantasticly tasty! Ooh yes!
    My dinner for tonight, for sure! x Yum Yum Yummm!

  49. Carolyn Chan says:

    That really is a celebration in your mouth ! Happy Cinco de Mayo !

  50. my husband would flip, definitely saying this recipe for a father day weekend meal:)

  51. We love burgers and would happily replace the bun with a tortilla. This is just the kind of recipe I like to serve on warm summer evenings on the patio. Actually, it would be delicious anytime.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Cathy, I really enjoyed the Mexican flavored burgers in the tortillas. Not only are they good but less bread compared to a bun. I think they would be terrific grilled on a BBQ and then making a taco buffet for a summer outdoor party. I’m glad you like the recipe, thank you.

  52. Amy says:

    What a fun twist on tacos. Tacos are definitely something I never think to make but really shoudl make more often. My mouth is watering now… ;)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amy, I’m glad that you like idea of combining a burger and a taco into one delicious meal. Now that the weather is warming up, you could grill the patties and have a taco buffet at an outdoor party.

  53. Raymund says:

    I will drop off any regular burger for this one, that sounds so good!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Raymund, I’m glad you like my idea of a burger taco, thank you. I have to agree with you, these will be making an appearance at our table again soon.

  54. Sissi says:

    What a creative dish! I have never seen burger tacos, but love the idea and am sure it tastes great. All the dishes are so appetising, I get hungry even though it’s already after the dinner. thank you for all the other delicious suggestions. Now it’s too late but next year I must remember to celebrate Cinco de Mayo ;-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sissi, I’m not surprised that you have never seen a burger taco in Switzerland or anywhere else but they really were good. I’m happy that you liked my recipes, thank you.

  55. Pam says:

    Your tacos have to be incredibly delicious! They are must try for here. Your blog is great and I will be looking around!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Pam, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. I’m happy to know that you enjoy my blog and recipes. :)

  56. I have one chipotle pepper that I am looking forward to using soon Karen :)

  57. Those are gorgeous. Almost makes me want to speak Spanish.

  58. I can just hear the blokes hurrah-ing all the world around. Burgers & Taco’s, as in two of everyone’s favourite foods, must make a lot of folks happy. I love both and I can see it working so well. Happy celebrations for Cinco de Mayo!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alli, I’m like you in that I love both burgers and tacos and thought I would combine them…they turned out great. Thank you for your wish and compliment.

  59. It looks SO delicious Karen – a must try very very soon :-)

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Anne, I’m glad that you like the looks of the burger tacos. I hope you enjoy them as much as my husband as I did.

  60. This is right up our alley at this house!

  61. viveka says:

    Karen, when are they ready to be served?????? I’m a hamburger girl, nearly anytime of the day. *smile – I will give you a tip of a brilliant grill sauce for any meat. Mix 50/50 of Sweet Chili Sauce and Japanese soy sauce. Brush on the meat and let it rest in ambient temperature for about 40 min before grilling.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Viveka, I’m happy you like my idea of burger tacos, thank you. I’m like you, I love a good burger. We are heading to Maine tomorrow to open up our cottage and we’ll be getting the BBQ grill out of storage. The next time I make burgers on the grill, I will definitely try your sauce. Thanks!

      • viveka says:

        Have a great trip … and you don’t need any other season then the BBQ marinade. I use it on everything – and it gets that caramelized surface.
        Look forward to your report from the cottage.
        Hard to beat a good burger. Drive safely and have a lovely weekend.

      • Karen says:

        Thank you for your wish. It is always a little bit of work to open the cottage for summer but it also means fun times ahead. :)

  62. terrific combinations of smoky spicy flavors, to enjoy beyond Cinco de Mayo and into summer on the grill!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nancy, I’m glad you like my recipe for the burger tacos, they are indeed very flavorful. We will be getting our BBQ grill out of storage at our summer cottage in Maine this weekend and I’m looking forward to grilling the burgers for the tacos. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  63. What fun tacos, I’d love to serve these at a BBQ as an unexpected surprise!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Laura, I’m glad you like the idea of the burger tacos, thank you for your nice compliment. I agree with you, they would be fun to serve at a BBQ, you could set up a taco buffet and let everyone choose these own toppings.

  64. These sound truly delicious, Karen! We love Mexican food any time of year! What a great blend of both sides of the border :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Susan, I’m happy that you enjoy Mexican food like I do and I’m glad that you like the burger tacos. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  65. Perhaps I’ve written before that one of these days I’ll cook something Mexican. As I love all of those ingredients. To the extent, I’d start eating meat again if you served me a plate of this. And although my caramelised onion hummus was good earlier, it sure wasn’t as good as this!

    • Karen says:

      I appreciate your kind words, Johnny. I’m glad you like the sound of the tacos even though you are not presently eating meat. There are so many Mexican dishes that don’t rely on meat…I’ll look forward to seeing what you create. :)

  66. Beth says:

    Thanks to you, I’ve now added “burger taco” to my vocabulary! They look great.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Beth, I’m glad you like the idea of a burger taco…we thought it was a great combination of flavors. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  67. Juliana says:

    Great idea using burger for tacos, and yes, the chipotle mayonnaise sounds delicious….yum!
    Thanks for this delicious recipe Karen….hope you are having a great week :D

    • Karen says:

      Hi Juliana, Using a burger in the taco was not only good but also so much easier to eat. The chipotle mayo really added to their overall goodness.

  68. Karen, this is such a scrumptious idea, and I love that it’s a lower-carb way of enjoying one of my favorite summertime treats – the big, juicy burger! That chipotle mayo is singing to my soul!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Georgia, I’m glad you like my idea of a burger taco…not as many carbs and lots of flavor. I appreciate your lovely compliment, thank you.

  69. Kristy says:

    A good Mexican meal sounds fabulous and these burger tacos have my mouth watering. They look terrific Karen. I never would have thought to put a burger in a taco, but why not! Pair it with an ice cold Corona or a margarita and I’d be a happy camper. In fact, now that I’ve missed Cinco de Mayo, I think I’m going to put this on our summer menus. It would be great with burgers off the grill and eaten on the back patio. :)

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Kristy, for your nice compliment. I’m glad you like the idea of the burger tacos. You are right about how good they will be if you grill the meat. We are opening up our cottage in Maine this weekend and will be taking our grill out of storage. You know I’ll be making these again.

  70. Dena says:

    These recipes make me oh-so-hungry. Thank you so much!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Dena, I appreciate that you stopped by to visit…it is always nice to meet another New Englander. I’m happy that you like the recipes, thank you for your nice compliment.

  71. Ruth says:

    Mouth watering right now! I love tacos and I love burgers and this is such a fun take on both dishes. Just in time, too. With all this warmer weather, it’s time to break out the grills!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruth, I’m glad you like how I combined the two dishes…I think the burger tacos were great. We are up in Maine this weekend to open our summer cottage and just got the grill out of storage. Now I’m looking for some warmer weather. :)

  72. chrisscheuer says:

    Oh what a fun idea Karen! It seems that we’re always in the mood for Mexican!

  73. gotasté says:

    Hello Karen, your taco burgers are just awesome! A hearty meal on its own. And I love the use of smoke paprika in your recipe that will create a beautiful flavour. Warmly, Danny

    • Karen says:

      Hi Danny, Nice to see you out visiting…thank you for your nice compliment. You are right, the smoked paprika adds lots of flavor, I’m glad you like the burger tacos.

  74. nice and comforing for a picnic bites!!!

  75. I’ve never heard of this before, but combining burgers and tacos is such a fun idea!! Both dishes are on our menu frequently during the summer, so I’ll have to add this to the rotation!

      Hi Liz, I thought it was fun to combine two favorite dishes into one. I hope you will enjoy the burger tacos. Thank you for your nice compliment.

    I love tacos, and your Burger Tacos with Chipotle Mayo sounds fabulous! I live in Los Angeles where we have lots of great Mexican restaurants, so I rarely make Mexican food at home, but I am going to give this one a go! Thanks!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Adri, I can just imagine all the great Mexican restaurants in LA, sure wish that was the case here in New England. I hope you will like the burger tacos as much as my husband and I did. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  77. A burger in a taco- love it!!! I also love the flavor of Chipotle Tabasco. I have some in my refrigerator but I always forget to use it!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Christin, I’m glad you like the burger tacos, thank you! I love Chipotle Tabasco. Actually, I like all the Tabasco products…the traditional one and the green jalapeño. :)

  78. Oh these look so delicious – I think anything with a tortilla immediately makes it 10 times better so I’m definitely going to give these a try. Yum!

  79. I can just see this getting wiped out at my place. Going to make this Karen. Thanks so much for sharing!!

      Hi Asmita, I’m glad you like the recipe. I just told my husband last night that I have to make this again now that we have our grill out of storage. I think grilling the burgers and setting up a taco bar will be fun when having friends over for a summer meal outside. Thank you for your nice compliment.

    Those tacos look like a meal I could have every night! Great topping and I love that chipotle sauce. I’ve never heard of Chipotle Tabasco. Need to find a bottle of that.

    • Karen says:

      Hi MJ, I know what you mean…I’ll be making these tacos again soon. Know your love of peppers, I know you will like the chipotle Tabasco.

  81. Super creative with the burgers for “taco meat”. That chipotle mayo looks amazing.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice compliment, Ducky. I’m glad you like the idea of combining two of my favorite dishes into one. I think the chipotle mayo really makes the tacos.

  82. grace says:

    i think i’ll eat just about anything you put in a tortilla, but a burger is among the best options! these look great!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Grace, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. From your comment, I believe that you will really enjoy the burger tacos. I hope you try and enjoy them. :)

    What a great selection of recipes. I love how you described the tacos – it is an intriguing idea to combine the two cuisines.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Suzanne, I’m glad you liked my recipes. I love Mexican food and cook it often. This was a fun dish that my husband and I really enjoyed.

  84. Looks delicious :) I love doing something similar with a lamb burger in Naan bread – YUM!

  85. Yum! I missed out a little on cinco de mayo- but it’s never too late for these tacos. I am just getting some chipolte mayo for Empire mayo company for the store. This would be a good recipe to refer to for it.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Wendy, Cinco de Mayo is just one day but I enjoy Mexican food and have it all year long. I’m glad you like my burger tacos.

  86. I missed these on Cinco de Mayo but I’ve already thawed hamburger for Memorial Day, so I’ll try these instead. These tacos look great.
