How To Make Big Mac Tacos (Vegan)

For this recipe, you’ll want to make my easy vegan big mac sauce (literally mixing vegan mayo, ketchup, mustard, sweet pickle relish, garlic powder & paprika), choose your preferred veggie ground beef, small tortillas (think hamburger bun-sized), plant-based cheddar or Mexican-style cheese, with shredded lettuce, sliced dill pickles and onion for that Big Mac taste.

Now, I definitely get comments that Big Mac sauce does not traditionally use ketchup (which I know they use vinegar and sugar instead), but those two ingredients are in ketchup and I think it’s better with ketchup (trust me I’ve perfected my vegan big mac sauce which is why it’s the most popular recipe). The ketchup makes it faster and easier to make since vinegar and sugar are already in it.
