Taste just like your favourite drive thru burger- these Big Mac tacos are filled with the classic fixings of melted American cheddar, chopped white onions, pickles, and lettuce with a hand pressed beef patty and finished with a copycat sauce. Enjoy all things eating out at home!
Seriously who doesn’t love a good old fashioned Big Mac. it’s a classic and makes our mouths water. It’s definitely not an everyday kind of meal and more of an occasional let’s splurge and hit up the drive thru when we’re in a pinch for us. Why did we not think of making these sooner?!? They are seriously da bomb and taste just like the real deal but in a taco.
They are actually really easy and super simple to make. Just like you would make a fresh hand-pressed burger and ground beef tacos then combine them both together. Voila! a perfect dupe.
We used our favourite soft taco corn tortillas as the shells. They are perfect for warming on the grill and don’t crumble at the fold. They hold up well and keep everything in. Soo fill them up high and drizzle on that copycat sauce!

Big Mac tacos
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Taste just like your favourite drive thru burger- these Big Mac tacos are filled with the classic fixings of melted american cheddar, onions and pickles made with a hand pressed beef patty.
2lb ground beef
10 slices american cheddar
1/2 cup white onion, chopped
shredded iceburg or romaine lettuce
10 corn tortillas
Big Mac sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 TBS yellow mustard
1 TBS ketchup
1 TBS relish
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
With your hands gently form the ground beef into a small puck about 2 inches tall, pressing together just until meat holds its shape without falling apart. Season generously on all sides with salt and pepper. Should form about 10 burgers. Alternatively you could just cook the ground beef in a large skillet until fully browned.
Heat a grilled over medium heat, lightly spray with olive oil. Cook pressed burger 3-4 minutes per sides until browned. Place a slice of cheese on the burger during the last minute of cooking. Remove from the heat and tent lightly to keep warm.
In the meantime have all of the ingredients prepared for assembly. Chop the lettuce and onions, and have the pickles ready. Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and stir until just combined.
In a pan or on the same grill, lightly coat each side of the tortillas with cooking spray and warm each for 30 seconds. Keep warm and repeat until all the tortillas have been warmed.
To assemble: place burger on one side of the tortilla, top with onion, 3-4 pickles, and lettuce. Finish with sauce and enjoy!
