Blackstone smash tacos

Blackstone smash tacos are a delicious and easy-to-make dish that combines the concept of smash burgers with traditional tacos. Here’s a simple recipe for Blackstone smash tacos:


For the Smash Patties:

  • 1 pound ground beef (80/20 blend for juiciness)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Taco seasoning (optional)

For Tacos:

  • Small flour or corn tortillas
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or your choice)
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Chopped cilantro (optional)


  1. Preheat the Blackstone Griddle:
    • Preheat your Blackstone griddle to medium-high heat.
  2. Prepare the Smash Patties:
    • Divide the ground beef into small portions (about golf ball-sized). Season each portion with salt, pepper, and optional taco seasoning.
  3. Smash the Patties:
    • Place each portion of ground beef onto the hot griddle. Use a spatula or burger press to smash the patties flat. This technique helps create crispy edges and a juicy interior. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Melt Cheese (Optional):
    • If you like, add a slice of cheese to each patty during the last minute of cooking and cover with a dome or lid to melt the cheese.
  5. Warm Tortillas:
    • While the patties are cooking, warm the tortillas on the griddle for about 10-15 seconds on each side.
  6. Assemble Tacos:
    • Place a smashed patty on each tortilla. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and any other desired toppings.
  7. Garnish:
    • Garnish the tacos with chopped cilantro if desired.
  8. Serve Hot:
    • Serve the Blackstone smash tacos immediately while the patties are hot and the toppings are fresh.

These Blackstone smash tacos offer a delightful combination of crispy, flavorful beef patties with all the classic taco toppings. Feel free to get creative with additional toppings such as jalapeƱos, onions, or hot sauce to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious smash tacos!
