Smashburger taco with lettuce, pickles, and sauce
Viral Smashburger Tacos Offer Fine Flavors And Handheld Fun
The Smashburger Taco, which has gone viral on TikTok, is a delicious hand-held snack that combines a thin, perfectly seared smashed burger with a tortilla and taco toppings.
To make this dish, place seasoned beef patties on a hot grill, top with a soft tortilla, and use a burger press or the underside of a frying pan to press the whole thing flat.
After a few minutes of searing, flip the fused burgers and tortillas to finish. Top with cheese, lettuce, pickles, your go-to burger or taco sauce, and any other toppings you like.
Some cooks online turn this dish into Big Mac Tacos by adding Big Mac sauce made of mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, onions, pickle relish, paprika, onion, and garlic powder.
To make this crispy and meaty snack more like a taco than a burger, use taco seasoning in your beef patties and top with hot sauce, cilantro, onion, queso fresco, and/or avocado.
