Viral Smash Burger Taco

You’ve heard of a taco. You’ve heard of a burger. But have you ever wondered what would happen if a taco and a burger had a little too much tequila and ended up having a love child? Wonder no more! Behold, the Viral Smash Burger Taco – because why force yourself to choose between two loves when you can have both?


For the Burger Patty:

  • 1 lb ground beef (go for the good stuff, these are bougie tacos)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste

For the Taco Shell:

  • 4 soft tortillas (life’s too short for hard-shell tacos that fall apart after the first bite)
  • Toppings (because what’s a taco without them?):
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • Tomato, diced
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • Cheese, grated (Cheddar, Swiss, or whatever floats your taco boat)
  • Pickles (because, burger vibes)
  • Thousand Island dressing (don’t @ me)

For the Extra-ness (optional but recommended):

  • Jalapeno slices
  • Avocado chunks
  • Secret sauce (It’s a secret, duh!)


Smash that Patty:

In a medium-hot skillet, take a small ball of beef and smash it down hard (take out your Monday frustrations on it). Season with salt and pepper. Flip when the edges get crispy. It’s like making a burger, but thinner and angrier.

Taco-fy it:

Take your soft tortilla and, like the hero you are, save it from its plain existence. Place it on the skillet for a minute, just until it’s warm and slightly crispy. You want it to have that “I woke up like this” look.

Layering Time:

Place the crispy, thin patty on the tortilla. Now, decorate that bad boy. Start with lettuce, then the cheese (so it can melt a bit), followed by the tomato, onion, and pickles. Drizzle with Thousand Island dressing, and if you’re feeling wild, throw on those extra toppings.

Roll or Fold:

The eternal debate: to roll or to fold? Do whatever feels right, or whatever makes less of a mess.


No instructions needed.

In conclusion, the Viral Smash Burger Taco is the answer to all your taco and burger dreams. It’s like a culinary peace treaty, a harmonious union that says, “Why fight over dominance when you can come together and be awesome?” Happy munching!
