Natalie’s Famous Taco Burgers

Cravings: PHNB ground beef, taco Tuesday, and the desire for better burgers. Challenge: make the stars align. Give you a burger that will ruin you for all other burgers: done.

Introducing the taco burger! Yup, you heard right. We’re combining the best of both worlds. Take your favorite aspects of a taco and combine them with juicy flavor blasts of a great hamburger. This recipe is quick and easy for lunch or dinner and a perfect recipe to wow dinner guests or your spouse. The best part? It’s completely customizable to your liking, and guests can assemble their own meals.

The opportunities for delicious sides are endless with this Mexican-American-inspired dinner. Tap into the Mexican theme by serving chips and salsa or rice and beans to complement the taco taste. If you’re looking to tone down the Mexican fiesta flavors, you can also serve with french fries or mac-n-cheese. Regardless of what you choose, your dinner guests will be begging for more!

A little about our beef:
The families of Painted Hills Natural Beef are ranchers in Wheeler County, Central Oregon. They raise cattle and steward the land in the shadow of the state’s famed Painted Hills for generations. While times have changed in the last two and a half decades, ranching the way nature intended has not. We’re proud to pasture raise our cattle without added hormones and no antibiotics. We raise a beef product for you as striking as the natural wonders it’s named after.

Above all, we thank you for trusting us to feed you and your loved ones. Of course, we’d love to see this unique burger recipe finished, and we hope you’ll tag us in a post on social media.
