Taco … burger … taco … burger. How do you decide? You don’t. That’s how. You just put them right together and go to town. Which is exactly what we did here. Now you can have the burger you’re craving with the crunchy, delicious tacos you’re, well, also craving. All with the sharp, cheesy delightfulness of Cooper® cheese bringing those two cravings together in magical harmony.


2 pounds ground beef (80/20)*
1 packet taco seasoning mix
8 hamburger buns
8-16 slices Cooper® Sharp White cheese
chunky salsa
tortilla chip strips
lettuce, shredded (optional)


In a large bowl, combine ground beef with taco seasoning until well mixed. Divide ground beef into 8 equal portions, about 4 ounces each for a 1/4-pound burger.

Cut buns in half.

In a medium skillet, toast the cut side of the rolls (if desired) with a small amount of butter. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Grill burgers 5-8 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Place a slice (or two) of Cooper® cheese on top of each burger and grill until cheese is melted. Remove from grill.

On the bottom portion of each bun, dollop a generous helping of guacamole. Add a spoonful of chunky salsa. Add some shredded lettuce if desired. Add the cheese-topped burger, then top with tortilla chip strips. Cap it off with the top of the bun, serve and enjoy!
