Crunch Wraps

At my house, tacos could make an appearance on my dinner menu at least once a week.  Everyone is happy when we have them but the old standard recipe can get boring.  So I am always trying to make changes the standard just to mix it up.  Tomorrow I will be sharing my top 5 ways to mix up taco night for my fab five post.  Be sure to check them out.

For today though, I have a brand new taco twist for you.  This is a copy cat version of a Taco Bell crunch wrap.  I have never had one of  Taco Bell’s crunch wraps but loved the idea, so we gave them a try and loved them.  It is basically a taco wrapped up a fun new way with the addition crunchy corn chip thrown in there but then you grill it to get the flour tortilla a little brown and crispy.  What a hit!  My youngest said, “Mom they’re a hexagon!” in between her bites while devouring her wrap.  I gave myself a pat on the back for reinforcing my daughters learning while eating dinner.

Crunch Wraps
  • 1 lb ground beef prepared with 1 pkg of taco seasoning according to pkg directions (for my family I only use have a pkg or I hear - "It's too spicy")
  • 4-5 burrito sized tortillas, warmed
  • sour cream
  • tomatoes, pico de gallo, or salsa
  • shredded cheddar cheese or nacho cheese sauce (apparently that is what taco bell uses)
  • tortilla chips, slightly crushed (we used Fritos)
  • shredded lettuce
  1. Spread a small circle of sour cream in the center of each tortilla.
  2. Divide beef between tortillas placing in the center of each.
  3. Then top each wrap with tomatoes, cheese, crushed tortilla chips and lettuce.
  4. To fold, pull the bottom of the tortilla to the center and continue around the entire tortilla. There will be a small opening in the center and you will have a hexagon shape.
  5. Place each wrap in a skillet over medium heat with the open side down.
  6. Grill for about a minute on each side until browned.

  • You can use tostada shells and larger tortillas and they’ll be the perfect imitation.. From my experience.

  • We made these at home a few years ago & instead of the tortilla chips or fritos, we used a hard corn tortilla that you can buy in a stack and put one of those in the middle. That separated the hot & cold layers too so it kept those apart. We only made them that one time because it took a little longer than we liked but they were absolutely delicious & your post has me wanting to make them all over again!

  • An Easy Idea for the hole in the middle place a smaller Taco sized tortilla in the middle that will make it easier to grill. Trust me (im managment there) lol

  • Yum! This looks very comforting and easy!
