Taco Burger Wrap

Serves 1


  • 8 ounces ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 large iceberg lettuce leaf
  • 1 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon sliced jalapeño
  • 11/2 tablespoons red taco sauce


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or stovetop grill pan over high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the beef, cumin, paprika, and lime juice until well combined. Form a patty that is oblong rather than circular. Be careful not to overwork the meat or pack the patty too tightly.
  3. Grill the patty to the desired doneness, 2 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  4. Place the lettuce on a plate and place the burger on the stem end. Top with the cheese, jalapeño, and taco sauce. Fold the lettuce over the burger—no bun required. Serve.
