Mini Smash Burger Tacos


  • 3 small flour tortilla shells ( I used Mission Zero Net Carbs, shells)
  • 9 oz of ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced tomato
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon of burger sauce


  1. In a bowl, combine the ground turkey with 2 tablespoons of ketchup (or your preferred seasoning) to add flavor to the meat.
  2. Divide the ground turkey into 3 equal portions, approximately 3 oz each.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Place one portion of the ground turkey onto the hot skillet, and use a spatula or the back of a spoon to smash and flatten the meat. This creates the smash burger effect. Repeat this step with the remaining portions.
  5. Cook the meat side down first, allowing it to sear and develop a nice crust for about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip the smashed burgers over and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes or until they are cooked through.
  7. While the burgers are cooking, warm the tortilla shells in a separate pan or in the oven according to the package instructions. Keep them warm until ready to use.
  8. Once the burgers are cooked, place them onto a plate and immediately sprinkle the cheddar cheese over each patty. The residual heat from the burgers will help melt the cheese.
  9. While the cheese is melting, prepare the toppings by dicing the tomatoes and shredding the lettuce.
  10. Take one tortilla shell and place a cheese-covered burger patty on it.
  11. Top the burger patty with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, ( pickles if you’d like as well) and a drizzle of burger sauce.
  12. Repeat this process with the remaining tortilla shells and burger patties.
  13. Serve the smash burger tacos immediately and enjoy!

Feel free to adjust the toppings and measurements according to your preference. Enjoy your delicious smash burger tacos!
