Grilled Taco Burgers will transform your burger game forever! Deliciously seasoned ground beef patties are topped with all kinds of goodies giving you a super tasty and fun way to enjoy your 2 favorite foods: tacos and burgers! Paleo and Whole30 approved.
You guys……We’re taking Taco Tuesday to a whole new level! I’ve combined two of our household favorite foods, tacos and burgers, to create the ultimate delicious meal. Thanks to my little guy who had the idea of combining these two. Let’s just say, here was the feedback:
“Game Changer! I won’t eat a burger any other way!” says the 10 year old who normally doesn’t care for burgers.
“This is every food I love. It tastes like a combination of burgers, ribs, and tacos!” says the meat loving little guy.
I’ll let you take their word for it! And seriously, what’s not to love? The husband and I were obsessing over the spiced up burger that was grilled to perfection and then topped with everything we love: onion, tomato, guacamole, cilantro, and jalapeño peppers. These goodies are an obvious must!
You can serve these several ways: inside a hamburger bun, wrapped in romaine or greens for a low carb version, or on top of grilled slices of sweet potatoes for a Paleo/Whole30 variation.
I’ve topped these with my 1 minute guacamole and some lime juice. We served with a easy green salad for the perfect summer evening meal!
Just in time for 4th of July, these are sure to be a hit with everyone!

Grilled Taco Burgers
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 3 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp chipotle powder optional
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 pounds Grass-fed ground beef
- 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
- 1/2 cup guacamole for garnish
- red onion slices for garnish
- 8 slices romaine lettuce for garnish
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
- 1 tomato, sliced for garnish
- 1 jalapeno, sliced for garnish
Begin by heating a charcoal or propane grill.
Prepare your taco seasoning. Mix together: chili powder, cumin, paprika, coriander, garlic powder, salt, and chipotle powder (if using).
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar and tomato paste.
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, taco seasoning, and tomato paste mixture. Mix well so the ingredients are well combined. Now add in chopped white onion.
Form into 6-8 patties. Grill for 3 minutes on the first side, then 5-6 minutes on the second side (for medium- medium well burgers).
Serve hot on a bun, romaine lettuce, or sweet potato slice and top with optional garnishes: guacamole, red onion, lettuce, cilantro, tomato, and jalapeño.
Thank you for the recipe! Here in México we also have a dish called “Taco”, but the dish consists in food inside a folded tortilla. What do you call “Taco” in your country? Because I see there is a ‘taco seasoning’, but I’ve never seen something like this in my country. Thank you again!
Great recipe, especially given everything you have going on!
