Sprinkle each ball with a dash of salt and pepper.

Add 1-2 ground beef balls into your pan (depending on your pan size) place a tortilla on top of each ground beef ball. Press the tortilla down to flatten the ground beef out to the size of the tortilla.

The best meat for Big Mac tacos:

The best ground beef to use for this recipe is either 80/20 or 93/7 ground beef. However, you can also use ground turkey in place of the pounds of ground beef.

Shells to use for ground beef tacos:

This is based on your preference but I love to use warm tortillas for these tacos. But, you can also use crispy shells or corn tortillas too.
