  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion finely diced
  • 1 pound ground beef I use 90% lean
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup nacho cheese sauce
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices
  • 4 hamburger buns toasted


  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes or until translucent.
  • Add the ground beef to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spatula into smaller pieces. 
  • Stir in the taco seasoning and tomato sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Divide the meat between the bottom buns, then top each sandwich with nacho cheese sauce and a few jalapeno slices. Place the top bun on each sandwich then serve immediately.
