Smash Tacos

Smash Beef Tacos

I have been using Siete Tortillas for a long time. However I have always been frustrated with the fact that they fall apart easily. Using these tortillas to make smash tacos has seemed to solve the problem of a torn tortilla. You can get super creative with these and add whatever you want to them.

What is a smash taco?

You take regular ground beef and place a ball of it on the stove and place a tortilla on top, then you use a smash burger press to press down on the tortilla until the ground beef is flattened.

This is a smash burger press. You can get them on amazon, you do not need one but they do help.

Siete Tortillas are my favorite gluten free tortilla because they do not have a bunch of junk ingredients. You can pronounce all of the ingredients and they taste really good.

Smash tacos are a great recipe when you are running short on time and have some extra ground beef or ground turkey or even ground chicken. The tortilla becomes crispy and delicious and resembles a quesadilla. 




    1. Instructions

      Heat up a large skillet on medium heat.

      Grab a ball of ground beef and put on the skillet in a ball shape, add some salt.

      Place the tortilla on top of the ground beef ball and press down with your smash burger press.

      If you do not have one of these, you can use a stainless steel  spatula. 

      Once the tortilla is pressed down, allow to cook for 30 seconds to a minute and then flip over with a spatula and cook on the other side.

      While it is cooking, add cheese of your choice on top and wait for it to finish cooking. 

      Place the taco on a plate and add whatever toppings you desire.

      Repeat until you have the amount of tacos that you want.


    This recipe will take anywhere from 15-20 minutes, depending on how many tacos you make.
