EAT | Taco Burgers
When concocting new recipes, I have one of two creative methods:
1. Careful planning and research, followed by trial and error until the recipe is perfected.
2. Get a spur of the moment idea; mash ingredients together. Hope for the best.
This recipe is clearly the product of the latter process. Is it elegant? Not really. Does it taste mighty fine? Yes Sir-ee! I mean, just think about it. Everybody loves burgers. Everybody loves tacos. Burgers combined with tacos = maximum love! My logic is flawless!
These burgers are perfect for mid-week when you can’t be bothered to make anything fancy, but you also don’t want to have the same old boring meat and salad combo. You can, of course, go all out with this baby if you want to take it up a notch. Add roasted capsicum or make your own salsa and seasonings. But for me, the best part of this burger is that it is quick, easy and a slightly different take on two old favourites.
