DIRECTIONS

  • Place the mushrooms, zucchini, onion, and red bell pepper in the bowl of a food processor and process until the vegetables are finely chopped.
  • Place the vegetables, ground meat, and taco seasoning mix in a medium-sized bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Shape the mixture into six 4-inch patties.
  • Grill the burgers over medium coals or cook under a broiler for about 6 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 165 degrees (160 degrees for ground beef) and the meat is no longer pink inside.
  • (To retain moisture, avoid pressing down on the patties as they cook.).
  • Alternatively, coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and cook the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the cheese over each burger, cover the grill, and cook for another minute, just until the cheese is melted.
  • Place each burger in a bun and top with some of the salsa or ketchup, onion, tomato, and lettuce.
