Tips And Tricks

Make sauce ahead of time so that way it’s done once you are ready to serve the tacos.

I used extra lean turkey meat and these tacos were still plenty juicy.

You may also use beef is preferred.

Make sure to spread the taco meat all the way to the edges of the tortilla as the meat will naturally shrink during cooking time.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these Viral Big Mac Tacos warm with toppings and homemade sauce.

Store meat and tortilla separate from the toppings. Reheat on the stove top or in an air fryer for best results and to achieve that crispy outer shell.
