Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 packet taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup shredded tex mex cheese cheddar/mozzarella is great as well
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 4 slices bread
  • 2-4 tbsp butter

Instructions

  • In frying pan add taco seasoning to ground beef and cook until done. 
  • While the beef is browning slice up tomato, avocado and shred lettuce
  • Once ground beef is cooked drain any extra fat off.
  • Turn oven to broil
  • Generously butter one side of bread
  • Top unbuttered side of bread with ground beef, then top with shredded cheese.
  • Place buttered side down in frying pan and cook over medium heat until bread is nicely browned. 
  • If making sandwich with a generous amount of ground beef follow next 2 steps. 
  • Transfer frying pan to oven and broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted. I find if you try to grill the sandwich completely on the stovetop by the time the cheese is melted the bread is burnt. So a few minutes under the broiler works great.
  • Place second slice of bread under broiler to toast.
  • Once cheese is melted remove from oven. Top with slices of tomato, avocado and shredded lettuce. Top with 2 slice of toasted bread.
