Ingredients Notes For “Wrap Star” Homemade Crunch Wrap Supreme:

  • Ground Beef: Seasoned with taco seasoning for that classic flavor. Swap with ground turkey, chicken, or a plant-based alternative if desired.
  • Large Flour Tortillas: The base of the crunch wrap, large enough to wrap around the fillings.
  • Tostada Shells: Adds the essential crunch. Alternatively, use crispy corn tortillas.
  • Queso: Choose a creamy queso sauce or shredded cheese that melts well.
  • Sour Cream: Adds a cool, tangy layer.
  • Lettuce and Tomatoes: For a fresh crunch and a pop of color.
  • Optional Additions: Customize with beans, rice, avocado, or hot sauce for extra flavor and texture.

Recipe Steps:

  1. Cook the Beef: Brown the ground beef in a skillet, drain excess fat, and stir in taco seasoning according to package instructions.
  2. Assemble the Crunch Wrap: Lay a large flour tortilla on a flat surface. Start with a layer of seasoned beef, then place a tostada shell on top. Spread queso or sprinkle cheese over the tostada, followed by sour cream, chopped lettuce, and diced tomatoes.
  3. Wrap: Place a smaller tortilla or a large piece of parchment paper over the fillings if your tortilla doesn’t reach around the fillings. Carefully fold the edges of the large tortilla towards the center, creating a flat, circular package.
  4. Grill: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place the crunch wrap seam-side down and grill until golden brown, then flip and grill the other side. The tortilla should seal itself closed.
  5. Serve: Enjoy your Homemade Crunch Wrap Supreme immediately, with additional sour cream or hot sauce on the side if desired.

Storage Options:

  • Best Enjoyed Fresh: These are best enjoyed immediately after cooking to maintain the crispness of the tostada shell.

Ingredients

For the Beef Filling:

  • Ground beef: 1 lb about 500g
  • Taco seasoning: 2 tablespoons store-bought or homemade
  • Water: 1/4 cup

For Assembly:

  • Large flour tortillas: 4-6 burrito size
  • Tostada shells: 4-6 or you can use corn tortillas fried until crispy
  • Nacho cheese sauce: 1/2 cup store-bought or homemade
  • Sour cream: As needed
  • Shredded lettuce: 1 cup
  • Diced tomatoes: 1/2 cup
  • Shredded cheese cheddar or Mexican blend: 1 cup
  • Cooking spray or vegetable oil: For frying

Instructions

Cook the Beef:

  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until it's no longer pink, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.
  • Stir in the taco seasoning and water. Simmer until the water is absorbed and the beef is well-coated with the seasoning. Set aside.

Assemble the Crunch Wraps:

  • Lay a large flour tortilla flat on a clean surface. Spread a layer of nacho cheese sauce in the center of the tortilla.
  • Add a scoop of the seasoned beef on top of the cheese sauce.
  • Place a tostada shell (or crispy corn tortilla) on top of the beef. Spread a thin layer of sour cream over the tostada shell.
  • Sprinkle shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and shredded cheese on top of the sour cream.
  • To fold the crunch wrap, start at the bottom of the tortilla and fold the edge up to the center. Continue working your way around, folding as tightly as possible, until the filling is completely enclosed.

Cook the Crunch Wraps:

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray or add a small amount of vegetable oil.
  • Place the crunch wrap seam-side down in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown, then carefully flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side until golden and the filling is heated through.

Serve:

  • Serve your Homemade Crunch Wrap Supreme immediately while hot and crispy.
