Low-Carb Smash Burger Tacos

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

I kept coming across this recipe across social media, so I had to try it for myself. I have to say I was VERY impressed. This super simple recipe takes only about 20 minutes and will be your new favorite dish. I honestly preferred using these tortillas instead of a bun, and they reminded me of an In-N-Out burger.

Low-Carb Smash Burgers

Ingredients for the Smash Burger:

  • 1 lb lean ground beef

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Taco Assembly:

  • Mission zero net-carb mini tortillas

  • Sliced cheddar cheese

Optional toppings:

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1 cup shredded lettuce

  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion

  • 1/4 cup chopped pickles


  1. Preparing the Smash Burger: Preheat a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Roll ground beef into 4 equal-sized balls, and then season with salt and pepper.

  2. Smash patties down on the pan with a heavy flat object or spatula (they should be thin) and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes per side, or until nicely browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness.

  3. Add your tortillas to the pan for around 30 seconds a side, add your cheese to briefly melt, then top with your patty and fold.

  4. Add your desired toppings and serve
