Cheeseburger Tacos

It’s Labor Day weekend! And I’ev got one more fun grilling idea I think you might like. How about these little cheeseburger tacos? Aren’t they cute? They would be great to serve to friends and family who are watching their carb intake.

I made these cheeseburger tacos pretty simple, but you can let your imagination run wild with them. I think it would be a  great idea to make a toppings bar for these filled with all the fresh veggies plus guacamole, sour cream, salsa and different hot sauces.

For the meat, I simply mixed a packet of taco seasoning with a package of ground beef and formed the burgers in half circles so they would fit in the tacos. Then I grilled the burgers and topped them with lots of yummy shredded cheese.

These cheeseburger tacos would make the perfect burger for your labor day party.

Speaking of cheesy goodness, I’ve recently partnered with The REAL Seal to bring you some great recipes, like these cheeseburger tacos made with REAL dairy products. Did you know that The REAL® Seal is the only assurance that what you are buying is made with the wholesome goodness of U.S.-produced cow’s milk? When you buy only products with the REAL® Seal, you can trust that you are buying only products or foods made from cows milk produced in the U.S. Milk and dairy foods are a core part of a healthy diet recommended by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). The DGA recommends 3 servings of low-fat or fat-free milk or milk products for those 9 years or older, 2.5 servings for those 4-8 years old, and 2 servings for those 2-3 years old. Americans are currently consuming about 2 dairy servings per day on average (1.8).
Real dairy makes a difference!
