WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Gary Stockwell from Lamb’s Fresh Market shared a tasty recipe for taco burgers and bacon-wrapped cream cheese jalapeño poppers.

Taco burgers

Ingredients:

1.5 lb. 85% lean ground chuck

1 cup crushed corn chips

1 packet taco seasoning

1 tablespoon dried minced onion

1 large egg, beaten

6 slices cheddar cheese

Leaf lettuce

Sliced tomato

Guacamole or salsa (optional)

Taco sauce (optional)

Sour cream (optional)

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix your crushed corn chips, taco seasoning, minced onion, and egg. Add in the ground chuck, and again mix thoroughly. Form this into hamburger patties that are about a quarter to a third-pound in size. Place on a grill that has been preheated to medium heat (about 350). Cook directly over the flame until the burgers reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees, flipping once. Place a slice of cheese on each patty and keep it on the grill until the cheese begins to melt. This usually takes about a minute or less depending on how hot your grill is. Top with your favorite taco toppings. You can put the burger on a bun or chop it up and put it in tortilla shells. Enjoy!
