  • Griddle, Pan, or Cast iron skillet
  • spatula
  • Press or another flat utensil
  • Bench scraper or spatula
  • Bowl or lid for covering


For the Taco Filling

  • 8 ounces ground beef, portioned into 4 balls
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 4-8 cheddar cheese slices
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 16 pickles

For the Sauce

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon pickle relish
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Black pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix well until the spices are evenly incorporated into the meat.
  • Portion the burger mixture into 4 equally sized portions.
  • Spread each ground beef ball evenly over the tortillas but don't cover the tortilla completely with the beef. Feel free to also season the meat with salt or taco seasoning if you like.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, pickle relish, apple cider vinegar, and ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Next, prepare a workstation by arranging the tortillas, cheese, and toppings, so that everything is ready to go.
  • Heat up your griddle or large skillet to high heat for searing and then place the tortilla on the skillet meat side down. Smash it down firmly using a burger press or a spatula so as to make it extremely thin. It's okay if the burger is a little bigger than the tortilla.
  • Let the meat cook for about 2-3 minutes or until the beef has darkened in color and is crisp on the bottom. Using a bench scraper or spatula, forcefully scrape the meat off the skillet and flip the tortillas.
  • Lower the heat to medium heat and place the cheddar cheese slices on top of the beef.
  • Top each of your smash burger tacos with shredded lettuce and pickles or your favorite taco toppings and serve them immediately on a serving plate.
