We all know typical tacos are made with ground beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese, salsa, and maybe some sour cream on top, right? Well, here’s another take on the traditional taco—how about a Cheeseburger Taco? I found this recipe when I did a review for the cookbook The Taco Revolution a few years back. There are all kinds of taco recipes in this book (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!) and the Cheeseburger Taco sounded really good to me! If you’re a taco-lover, you may want to add this book to your cookbook collection! 🙂
Instead of using ground beef, I decided to substitute veggie crumbles, so for those of you on meatless diets, this tastes great with those crumbles! This taco also has cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and relish for a great cheeseburger taste! Make some for an easy lunch or dinner—they’re great for game-watching, too!
CHEESEBURGER TACO adapted from The Taco Revolution cookbook
Makes 6 tacos
1 pound ground beef (or substitute veggie crumbles for a meatless version)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided (I used a Fiesta/Mexican blend of shredded cheese)
1 1/2 cups torn lettuce (large pieces)
1 plum tomato, diced
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup relish
Additional shredded cheese, for topping
Tortillas (I used 6″ multigrain tortillas)
Brown ground beef in a large pan over medium-high heat, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add cheese and cook 1 more minute, mixing constantly, until fully melted (or cook veggie crumbles, if using as a substitute for the ground beef).
Top a tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and red onion, Add cheesy ground beef mixture and top with relish and a sprinkling of shredded cheese.

These tacos were a lot easier to eat and less messy than I thought they would be—after you put all the ingredients on your tortillas, you just fold them over and eat! I really liked this taco—I thought it tasted great and it was super easy to make! Do you make tacos often? Have you tried making any unique taco recipes?
