Taco Burger

I came up with this idea from a cook book I recently got, it's Bugers by Paul Gayler. While thumbing through the book I came across teh new Mexican Burger, which is a buger on a corn tortilla served with salsa, sour cream, lettuce, and guacamole. I decided to take this recipe and give it my own spin while trying to keep with the theme. I seasoned the meat with my favorite taco seasoning, served it on a bun and covered it with all the ussual taco toppings. The end result was delicious and loads of fun to eat. The best part is it's Tot approved! My little girl loves tacos so it was no big deal to be eating all the ussual taco ingredients.
Hamburger buns
1lb lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
sliced cheese
sour cream
taco sauce
2 avacados
1 small onion
2 roma tomatos
1 tbsp Lime juice
salt to taste

Make the guacamole by slicing the avacado in half, remove the pit by striking it with the sharp edge of your knife and simply twisting the pit loose. Next take an avacado half and slice the avacado with a kitchen kife into small cubes then scoop out with a spoon into a small bowl. Chop the onion and roma tomatos into small pieces and combine with the avacado. Add the lime juice and mix well with a fork, add enough salt to taste.

Combine the taco seasoning with 1lb ground beef, being sure to fully incoporate the two. Set the grill up for direct grilling and cook through, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. To assemble place the hamburger patties on a bun and topped with cheese, lettuce, a spoonfull of guacamole, and a touch of taco sauce.
