Taco Smash Burger

Burger meets taco. It’s the best of both weeknight staples. Try seasoning the beef with taco seasoning if you’re feeling more taco, or adding a fried egg and some bacon if you’re feeling more breakfast for dinner.

Taco Smash Burger
Yield: 2

Taco Smash Burger


  • 6 oz ground beef
  • 2 small flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Tomato, chopped
  • Sliced lettuce
  • Various condiments
  • Toasted sesame seeds, to garnish


  1. Set the oven at 400℉ degrees. Press 4 ounces of ground beef onto each tortilla and season liberally with salt and pepper. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil. When shimmering, add the tortilla, meat-side down, and cook until the meat is just pink, about 6 minutes.
  2. Remove from the pan and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas, then top with cheese and place in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.
  3. Top each burger with desired toppings and serve immediately.
