Sesame seeds and special sauce are the stars here, transporting the essence of the Big Mac into our tacos.

  • 500g ground beef
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 100g iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 medium-sized pickles, sliced
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • Special sauce:
  • 120ml mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons pickled relish
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

The making of Big Mac Tacos is simple yet thrilling, like composing a symphony with flavors that sing in harmony. Here are the steps to culinary fusion bliss:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together all the special sauce ingredients until smooth and cohesive; set aside.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook the ground beef with taco seasoning until brown and crumbly.
  3. Warm tortillas in a dry pan or microwave, then divide the cooked beef among them.
  4. Place half a slice of cheddar cheese on each taco, allowing the residual heat to melt it slightly.
  5. Top with shredded lettuce, diced onions, and pickle slices.
  6. Drizzle each taco generously with the special sauce, and lovingly sprinkle sesame seeds over the sauce for that authentic Big Mac touch.
  7. Serve immediately with a side of fries or a light salad, and bask in the glory of your culinary creation.
