Viral Big Mac Taco Recipe


1 pound (450g) Ground Meat or any Vegan Substitute

1/4 cup Mayonnaise

2 tbsp Mustard

2 tbsp Sweet Pickle Relish

1 tbsp White Vinegar

1 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp Onion Powder

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp White Pepper


1. Cook the ground meat:

  • Heat a skillet or pan over medium heat. Add the ground meat and cook until browned, breaking it up into small crumbles as it cooks.
  • Drain any excess grease and season the cooked ground meat with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Prepare the Big Mac Sauce:

  • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, sweet pickle relish, white vinegar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and white pepper.
  • Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Set the sauce aside.

3. Assemble the Tacos:

  • Place a tortilla on a flat surface and spread a generous spoonful of the cooked meat onto one side of the tortilla.
  • Flip the tortilla over, and on the other side of the meat, place a slice of American cheese.
  • Top the cheese with pickle slices, shredded lettuce, and a sprinkle of finely chopped white onions.
  • Drizzle a spoonful of the Big Mac sauce over the toppings.

4. Fold and Cook the Tacos:

  • Fold the tortilla in half, creating a taco shape with the fillings enclosed.
  • Preheat a clean skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with cooking spray or oil.
  • Place the folded taco onto the heated skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until the tortilla is golden brown and crispy.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Repeat the assembling and cooking steps for the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  • Serve your delicious Big Mac Tacos while they’re still warm.
  • Feel free to garnish with additional pickle slices, shredded lettuce, and Big Mac sauce for an extra burst of flavour.
