Tex mex burgers

Tex mex burgers




  • 500g heart smart beef mince
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 35g packet of taco seasoning mix
  • half a cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped (optional)
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 slices bread or hamburger buns


Combine mince, water, seasoning mix and tomato sauce.

Form into 4 large burgers or 8 small burgers.

Heat a non-stick frypan to medium heat and cook 4 burgers at a time.

Dont rush or you will end up with male-bbq-style burnt burgers.

Allow 6-7 minutes each side and turn only once.

Toast bread or burger buns, top with lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado (if using) and burger.

Serve with extra tomato sauce or salsa.


  • Use only half the packet of seasoning mix if your kids dont like spicy tastes.
  • The toothpick with chilli and avocado is purely decorative, but isnt it fantastic!
  • An idea I stole whilst on holiday it also looks good with a lime or lemon wedge with the chilli.
