Crunchwrap Supreme {Better than Taco-Bell}

These Taco Bell copycat Crunchwrap Supremes are crispy, cheesy and quick flavor bombs – 100x better than fast food! 🌮 If you enjoy tacos, you will LOVE these handheld wraps loaded with seasoned beef, tomatoes, lettuce, crunchy tostada shells, sour cream, and melted queso. Pan-fry ’til crisp and your 20-minute meal is served!

I have a new obsession, and you’re looking at it.

I only tried the famous Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell one year ago. But, from first bite I knew I could do it better. Similar recipes have been sensationally popular on Pinterest, which have made me anticipate cooking these EVERY. DAMN. DAY. since I became inspired.

Well, the day has come. We’re not reinventing the wheel here. But, it is safe to say this is one of the absolute BEST dinners I have made this summer. More than a few lucky taste-testers happen to agree!

I’m so excited to share this copycat Crunchwrap Supreme recipe with you. It is made SO easily at home, with a handful of basic ingredients – ground beef (or turkey), tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cheese, melty nacho cheese, sour cream, and crunchy tostada shells. Wrap it up in a huge flour tortilla, sizzle on your skillet, and prepare your taste buds for a flavor bomb, baby.

💥 BOOM! 💥

• In a large skillet set to medium-high, add 1 Tbsp. oil.

• Once hot, add ground meat and taco seasoning. Crumble meat as it cooks, 3-5 minutes. Drain excess grease and set aside. Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels. Microwave for 30 seconds, until warm and soft.

• Pour nacho cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, until warm.

• Lay out tortillas on a work surface. Scoop about 1/2 cup ground meat in the center of each tortilla. Spoon 1/4 cup nacho cheese over meat. Top with 1 tostada shell. Evenly spread sour cream on top. Sprinkle on lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese.

• Fold tortilla edges up and over the center. Work all the way around, folding tightly.

• Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in the same skillet. Once hot, add wrap seam-side down. Cook until the underside is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook wrap about 1-2 minutes more.

• Slice, serve warm, and enjoy!

If you prefer an alternative meat to ground beef or turkey, try a ground chicken, ground pork, or a plant-based ground meat substitute like Beyond Meat (absolutely not sponsored, just a good option for my vegetarian friends!).

This would also work great with shredded beef, chicken or pork! Or, even chopped grilled shrimp. Yum!

Crunchwrap Supreme Recipe

Servings 4 to 6 servings
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil divided
  • 1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey
  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 4 to 6 (12-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup nacho cheese warmed
  • 4 tostada shells
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 3 Roma tomatoes small diced
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese

Instructions

  • In a large skillet set to medium-high, add 1 Tbsp. oil.
  • Once hot, add ground meat and taco seasoning. Crumble meat as it cooks, 3-5 minutes. Drain excess grease and set aside.
  • Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels. Microwave for 30 seconds, until warm and soft.
  • Pour nacho cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, until warm.
  • Lay out tortillas on a work surface. Scoop about 1/2 cup ground meat in the center of each tortilla. Spoon 1/4 cup nacho cheese over beef. Top with 1 tostada shell. Evenly spread sour cream on top. Sprinkle on lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese.
  • Fold tortilla edges up and over the center. Work all the way around, folding tightly.
  • Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in the same skillet. Once hot, add wrap seam-side down. Cook until the underside is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook wrap about 1-2 minutes more.
  • Slice, serve warm, and enjoy!

Notes

• Depending how much ground meat and filling you have leftover, this recipe makes 4 to 6 crunchwraps.
You can use 10-inch tortillas instead of 12-inch tortillas. Just be aware, the wrap won't close completely - this is fine. Close tortilla as tightly as you can over the shredded cheese layer and pan fry cheese-side down first. The fried cheese will seal the tortilla!
• I got the crunchy tostada shells at Wal-Mart, not my local grocery store. Hot tip, if you're having trouble finding them!
