One particular smash burger taco is leading the way on TikTok.

Several users on TikTok have posted videos of their own unique smash burger taco recipes. However, a smash burger taco that pops up the most is one that may require you to go to McDonald's before cooking – to source Big Mac sauce.

Regular or low-fat, the smash burger taco that TikTok seemingly cannot go without is the Big Mac smash burger taco with McDonald's version, or homemade sauce.

For people who opt to make homemade sauce, it won't take long, especially since a Big Mac sauce recipe calls for simple ingredients — like mayonnaise and ketchup, and a few other basic burger fixins. However, it's suggested that you refrigerate the sauce for at least two hours (preferably overnight) in order for it to taste most like the real thing.

Chrissy put her own spin on making a smash taco burger on a true enamel skillet, and shared the results on her TikTok, @cravingsbychrissyteigen. Let's just say the mom of four and cookbook author was all smiles after trying the finishing product.
