A fast and flavorful weeknight dinner, Sloppy Taco Burgers are best served on a bakery bun with cilantro avocado spread and cotija cheese beside a pile of freshly made Crispy Oven Fries!
Because we still have some cold weather evenings that we’re gonna need a flavorful weeknight dinner…Sloppy Taco Burgers. Sloppy Joe’s taken to a whole new level. I adore the flavors of RO*TEL tomatoes and enchilada sauce, I decided to put them together and make a weeknight dinner that was sure to please my entire family. It sure helps that this recipe starts with a few pantry staples, add a few things from the produce and bakery section and dinner is just about served.

To Make Sloppy Taco Burgers:
Brown ground turkey, add minced garlic, ground cumin and salt. Cook for 2 minutes. Add RO*TEL Tomatoes and enchilada sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Make cilantro avocado spread. Spread on toasted bakery buns and top with meat mixture and sprinkle with cotija cheese. Serve immediately.
Kitchen Hack and secret to crispy oven fries:
After washing yukon gold potatoes, cut into fries. Place in a colander and sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Toss to coat and allow to stand for 20-30 minutes. Pat dry and place in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Arrange fries on a lightly greased foil lined baking sheet, making sure they are in a single layer and have a bit of space between them. Bake at 425º for 20 minutes, flip and bake an additional 15-20 minutes until crispy. Serve immediately.
The secret to this hack is the sugar! It helps the potatoes release some excess moisture and then they bake up nice and crisp.
