This is my take on a hamburger when I don't want the usual. This is my take on a hamburger when I don't want the usual.
Number of Servings: 5


    15 oz Extra Lean Ground Beef
    Taco Seasoning (about 1 tsp per burger)
    3 Soft Taco Tortilla's
    3/4 C Cheddar Jack Cheese


Separate Ground beef into 3 oz portions. Add Taco seasoning to each portion, mix and form burgers. Fry burgers in skillet unitl done as you like.

Meanwhile, heat oil in skillet. Determine what size tortilla is needed for each burger. Use cookie cutter, or cut out with a cup and knife, circles to the correct diameter. Fry in oil. Drain on paper towels. (you can fry the scraps from the tortilla for chips as well)

When burgers are cooked, place about 1/8 C cheese on each one. Cover the pan and melt the cheese. Place a tortilla circle on a plate, and add cheeseburger once melted. Serve with a second tortilla round on the side and top as you would like with salsa, onion, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce, etc. (no toppings included in recipe).

    This was real good. To be a little healthier I grilled the burgers and baked the tortilla's instead of frying. The kids loved it! - 11/10/11
