Big Mac tacos are a great way to add a new twist to Taco Tuesdays. Are they burgers? Are they tacos? They’re both, and they’re delicious!
Tacos and burgers, especially the ever-popular Big Mac, are two of the world’s best comfort foods, in my opinion. So I thought to myself, “Self, why don’t we combine a Big Mac and a taco and see what happens?” The result? Pure deliciousness.
Big Mac Tacos
I’ve always been a huge fan of Big Macs. When I was in high school, I practically lived off of them. Whenever I was hungry while I was out and about, I’d slide into the McDonald’s drive-through and order one. Now that I’ve mastered the art of creating those classic flavors, I love putting them into just about anything, including these tacos.
It only takes a few ingredients to make these tasty tacos. Aside from the beef, I wouldn’t be surprised if you had them in our kitchen right now.
- ground beef
- yellow onions
- cheddar cheese
- taco shells
It only takes three – yes, THREE – steps to make these delicious Big Mac tacos. It couldn’t be easier.
Step 1: In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef with salt and pepper.
Step 2: While the meat is cooking, prepare the sauce by combining mayonnaise, 1/4 cup pickles, mustard, ketchup, and paprika. When no pink is showing in the ground beef, stir sauce into meat until evenly coated.
Step 3: Assemble the tacos with lettuce, meat mixture, onion, cheese, and pickles.
You only need a few simple kitchen tools to make this recipe.
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Cutting board
- Spoon or spatula
- Pan or skillet
Other Onions: If you don’t have yellow onions, white or sweet onions will work.
Colby Jack: Colby Jack is a great alternative if you don’t have cheddar cheese.
Looking for ways to change these Big Mac tacos up? Here are some suggestions.

The filling for these tacos will last for 3 – 5 days in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
A salad is a nice side dish. You could also serve these tacos with fries or tater tots to pair with the Big Mac filling.
You probably forgot to drain the grease. If you use anything other than ground sirloin, you’ll have to drain it to get rid of the excess grease.
