A Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme is a delicious and customizable dish inspired by the popular fast-food item. It consists of various layers of ingredients wrapped in a large tortilla and then crisped up on a hot griddle. Here’s how to make it:
For the Filling:
- 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
- 1 packet taco seasoning (or make your own with chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper)
- 1 cup refried beans
- 1 cup nacho cheese sauce (store-bought or homemade)
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1 cup crushed tortilla chips (for the crunch)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 1/2 cup diced jalapeños (optional)
- 4 large flour tortillas (burrito-sized)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Prepare the Filling:
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef or turkey until browned and crumbled.
- Drain excess fat, if necessary.
- Add the taco seasoning and follow the package instructions, typically involving adding water and simmering until the mixture thickens. If you’re making your own seasoning, follow your chosen recipe.
- Assemble the Crunchwrap:
- Lay a large flour tortilla flat on a clean surface.
- In the center of the tortilla, spread a spoonful of refried beans, leaving about a 1.5-inch border around the edge.
- On top of the beans, add a layer of the cooked meat mixture.
- Drizzle nacho cheese sauce over the meat.
- Add diced tomatoes, lettuce, onions, jalapeños (if using), and a handful of crushed tortilla chips.
- Fold the Crunchwrap:
- To fold the Crunchwrap, start by folding in the sides of the tortilla, making sure the filling is well-contained.
- Then, fold up the bottom of the tortilla to create a tight bundle.
- Place the folded side down onto a hot griddle or large skillet to sear it shut.
- Cook for a few minutes on each side until the tortilla is crispy and golden brown. You can use a little oil or non-stick cooking spray to help with browning.
- Remove the Crunchwrap from the griddle and let it cool for a minute.
- Cut it in half, and you’re ready to enjoy. You can serve it with extra sour cream and salsa on the side if desired.
