I can’t count how many of these homemade Crunchwrap Supremes I’ve made for my daughter!

Take-Out Fake-Out

Like most fast foods, Crunchwraps taste even better made at home! You can adjust the toppings to be a bit healthier (low-fat cheeses and up the veggies) and even swap out a whole wheat tortilla if you’d like!

Everyone can build their own, add in favorites from shredded salsa chicken to spicy homemade jalapenos!

Ingredients

A Crunchwrap Supreme is easy to make at home in just a few steps and they’re great to use up leftover taco fillings of any kind!

TORTILLAS A loaded tostada covered with filling is wrapped in a flour tortilla, you’ll need the larger size. Be sure to warm the tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds to keep it from cracking as you wrap it.

FILLING I use ground beef with taco seasoning but any ground meat will work (or even chicken).

Cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes will cover the basics but don’t be afraid to add in your own favorites. Refried beans, sautéed bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, jalapenos, green chilies, and sliced olives!

Tostada Tip

A tostada is a small crispy flat tortilla, almost like a big round tortilla chip. The crispy tostada is used to separate the hot (beef/cheese) from the cold (lettuce/tomatoes).

If you don’t have a tostada shell, swap it out for tortilla chips. Break off any sharp corners so they don’t rip the tortilla as you fold it and stack them high in your crunchwrap.

How to Make a Crunchwrap Supreme

Here’s where the magic happens! The secret ingredient to a Crunchwrap Supreme is a crunchy tostada (or tostada chips) placed in the center of each tortilla.

  1. Cook ground beef and seasonings until thickened (per recipe below).
  2. Add filling to the center of each warmed tortilla. Top with a tostada shell, sour cream, lettuce, tomato, and cheese.

  1. Cut one flour tortilla into quarters (4 pieces) and cut the corners off to make it round (image below).
  2. Place the triangle of tortilla on top and fold the bottom tortilla up and around the covered tostada.

  1. Cook Crunchwraps in a bit of oil until they are golden brown and sealed on both sides.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole. Add in a side of Cilantro Tomato Rice and a pitcher of easy Strawberry Margaritas to wash down all that zesty goodness!

Leftovers

  • Because they have fresh veggies and sour cream, they’re best if enjoyed fresh.
  • Leftovers can be reheated (the lettuce will not be crisp) in the microwave.

Copycat Crunchwrap Supreme

Fried until crunchy and melty, this Crunchwrap Supreme is perfect for taco night!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients  

  • 5 large flour tortillas
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • cup water
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • cup nacho cheese sauce
  • 4 tostadas or 2 cups tortilla chips
  • cup sour cream
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce shredded
  • 1 cup tomatoes diced
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese blend shredded

Instructions 

  • Brown ground beef in a large pan. Drain fat. Add ⅓ cup water and taco seasoning. Simmer 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • Meanwhile, cut one of the flour tortillas into quarters. Cut the corners to be rounded.
  • Heat the remaining flour tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds (this keeps them from cracking).
  • Add ¼ cup ground beef to the center of each tortilla. Top with cheese sauce. Add tostada shell, sour cream, lettuce, tomato, and cheese blend.
  • Place the ¼ piece of the tortilla in the center and gently fold the tortilla to seal.
  • Preheat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium heat in a large skillet (or to cook all of the crunchwraps at once, preheat a large griddle).
  • Place tortillas, seam side down, in the skillet and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Keep the hot fillings on one side of the tostada and the cold fillings on the other side. Keep the lettuce in the center so it doesn't cook.
Ground beef can be substituted with any ground meat or even pulled chicken.
If you don't have tostada shells, substitute a handful of crispy tortilla chips (I break off any sharp corners to keep from ripping the tortilla).

  1. The recipe calls for 2 cups of shredded cheese. For 4 wraps, that would be 1/2 cup of cheese each. Is that correct?

  2. Ok this was waaaaaaay super easy to make! It hardly took any time! And it was so DELICIOUS! Much better than Taco Bell honestly this used to be my favorite thing to eat there! I just don’t go as much… but for a cheaper, tastier option! Definitely hit the spot! Perfect recipe! Thanks so much!!!!5 stars

  3. Totally making this for lunch today!! Subbing refried beans mixed with the taco seasoning for the meat, and I cannot wait to nosh on this!! Hungry already!!

  4. Amazing recipe, I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 because the cook time was off. If you have a properly heated pan it should only take 1-2 minutes. Otherwise you’re going to burn your tortillas. Aside from that, delicious! Add Mexican rice and hot sauce, amazing meal. Good job!4 stars

    1. I didn’t have tostadas so I used Doritos instead.. game changer! I love it both ways – what a great recipe, thank you so much!!5 stars

  5. I used big tortillas and then smaller ones the size of the tostada for the topper rather than cut the big ones up.

    1. The tortilla is folded in towards the center. If you put the folded side down first to cook, it will cook sealed and you won’t need to add water.
