Oh you guys. It is so HOT! I lost my swimsuit, I need to get another one, my kids pool is calling me and.....it is just so HOT! Anyway, I digress....
Taco burgers are a family favorite for the Simmermans. These date way back and when I made homemade taco seasoning I decided to surprise my husband with taco burgers for dinner. Neither of us are big on sloppy joes, but taco burgers man, they are an entirely different ballgame.
I don't think there is a lot of explaining that needs to happen. Just remember for anyone who doesn't care for the "burger" aspect, at least make this taco meat because seriously, it is amazing. And you can keep a few taco shells on hand for the anti burger people. Top it with whatever you like, we are lettuce, cheese and a thick slice of tomato kind of family but you do you!
I did 2 lbs of meat because what is better than taco burgers or tacos for dinner? The same thing for lunch the next day!
2 lbs ground beef
1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
3-4 T homemade taco seasoning (2 pkgs of the store bought stuff)
1/2 cup water
Brown your hamburger as you normally would. Drain off any excess fat and place back in the pot. Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir to combine and let simmer about 3-5 minutes.
OH the flavor!
See how easy it is? Make sure not to skip draining off the fat, nobody wants a soggy burger. The water will just loosen it up a bit so no worries there.
Now toast your bun or don't, I do NOT toast it for this. Make sure your lettuce is shredded. It tastes better. Stop looking at me like THAT. It does! Dive in. Over and over!
