Holy guacamole. Wow.
Granted, I have no basis on which to compare my boyfriend’s copycat crunch wraps as I have never tasted one from Taco Bell. He thought that was an atrocity. Even after all those years of having a Taco Bell built into the MUB at UNH…. However, I digress and I do know good food when I taste it and this thing….Wow.
I was in charge of the filling, which is my ultimate taco meat. I made it using ground turkey breast this time and substituted black beans for pinto beans.
I was busy during the construction phase of these babies so there are no pics. I wish so badly that there were because we can’t get over how well this meal turned out tonight!! Seriously. Alright, I’ll stop bragging about the meal and just write the recipe….
Copycat Taco Bell Crunch Wrap Supremes
- 1 batch of ultimate taco meat, made with meat and beans of your choosing
- 6 large burrito wraps
- 6 crunchy taco shells
- 1 jar of queso sauce
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
- 1 pint diced cherry tomatoes
- 1 small can sliced black olives (optional — I personally detest olives but I guess they were good in here!)
- 1 bag shredded Mexican cheese
~ Microwave the large burrito wraps for 20 seconds. Spread approximately 1/2 c. taco meat in the middle of the burrito.
~ Warm the queso in the microwave, too. Drizzle queso over the meat, approximately two tsp. per crunch wrap.
~ Break taco shells in 1/2 and place them on top of the queso, trying to form a circle with the two halves.
~ Top with a dollop of sour cream, a handful of shredded lettuce, a couple tsp. of tomatoes, a handful of cheese, and other Mexican-style toppings that you enjoy. Guacamole would be amazing in this, too!!
~ Fold the wrap over and around the fillings, creating something like the picture above and below.
~ Place on a griddle spritzed with cooking spray or on a greased grill pan. Cook for about 2-3 min per side or until the crunch wraps turn golden brown and are crispy.
~ Serve immediately. Eat immediately. Fall in love immediately. I’m serious!! 🙂
HE SAID THESE TASTE BETTER THAN THE ONES FROM TACO BELL!! <3
