1 pound grass-fed ground beef
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 4 flour tortillas
- 4 slices American or sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
- Sliced dill pickles
- SideDish Chipotle Ranch
Portion the beef into four 3.5 ounce balls. Have the salt, pepper, tortillas, and cheese ready to go as this process happens quickly.
Heat a griddle over high heat. I use my griddle over my grill, but you can do this on your stovetop if preferred!
When hot, season the beef with salt and pepper and place on the griddle.
Quickly place a flour tortilla on top of the beef and smash it down using a burger press or a spatula. Press down to make sure it’s extremely thin. It’s not a problem if the burger is a little bigger than the tortilla. Let the meat cook for about 3 minutes or until the color of the beef has darkened and it’s crisp on the bottom.
Carefully scrape up the tacos using a sturdy spatula and flip the tacos. Reduce the heat to low, add the cheese to the top of the burger patty and cover to allow the cheese to melt, about 1 more minute.
Remove from the grill and top with lettuce, pickles and a drizzle SideDish Chipotle Ranch.
