Taco Turkey Burgers

If you are thinking of making just plain ole' beef burgers this weekend, seriously reconsider after you read this post. Three simple words will make you say "I'm grilling those tonight"…..Taco-Turkey- Burgers. They are out of this world delicious and super healthy for you. What's better than super delicious and super healthy?…not much in my opinion. They will taste like you are biting into a juicy taco, only better. The boys thought we were just having hamburgers tonight and after taking a bite each one said "Wow, these taste like a taco!" The toppings also make this burger irresistibly delicious…melted muenster cheese, sliced avocado, red onion, nacho strips and salsa. Oh, and be warned, these taco turkey burgers are so huge you'll need a fork and knife to eat them. Unless, they are meant to be sliders, nothing makes me more disappointed when I get a puny burger. So, I always make mine extra large, so I'm extra satisfied. Plus, the hungry men in my house would have it no other way. So make your next BBQ extra special by making these amazing turkey burgers. Salute to big, fat, juicy, healthy, taco turkey burgers topped with melted, muenster cheese, avocado, red onion, nacho strips and salsa….YUMMO!

  1. Love this idea! My husband loves turkey burgers, but I find them dull, so I am always looking for variations.

    1. Adding the taco seasoning really kicks things up a notch in terms of flavor. They were truly a hit in our house. Let me know how yours turn out! By the way, I enjoy reading your blog!
