Smashed Cheeseburger Tacos – Tips

Season your beef well – Don’t skimp on the spices! Use a good burger seasoning blend or create your own with paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

Cook the beef in batches – This prevents overcrowding the pan and ensures even browning.

Toast your tortillas – This adds a delightful crispness and prevents them from getting soggy.

Shred your cheese – Pre-shredded cheese often contains anti-caking agents that can affect the meltability.

Get creative with toppings – Lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles are a great base, but don’t be afraid to add guacamole, sour cream, salsa, jalapeños, or your favorite burger sauce.
