Trust us, this is every bit as good as the real thing!
Crunchwrap Supremes are loaded with seasoned ground beef, nacho cheese, sour cream and more all wrapped inside a large flour tortilla. There is a corn tortilla hidden inside that gives it that crunch we all love!
Taco Bell hit the nail right on the head when it launched its now-legendary Crunchwrap in 2006. Their ingenious idea was to combine three concepts into one handheld wrap: cheese sauce from nachos, pretty much every yummy part from a crispy ground beef taco, and a soft flour tortilla to wrap it all up. The whole thing is then griddled like a quesadilla.
Here’s how to make one at home — and I’m not afraid to say it’s even better than the one you’d pick up at the drive-through.
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground paprika
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
Freshly ground black pepper
8 large flour tortillas
1/2 c. nacho cheese sauce
4 tostada shells
1 c. sour cream
2 c. shredded lettuce
1 c. chopped tomatoes
1 c. shredded cheddar
1 c. shredded Monterey Jack
1 tbsp. vegetable oil

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine ground beef and spices and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat and wipe skillet clean.
Stack 4 large flour tortillas and place a tostada shell in the center. Using a paring knife, trace around edges of shell to cut 4 smaller flour tortilla rounds.
Build Crunchwraps: Add a scoop of ground beef to the center of remaining 4 large flour tortillas, leaving a generous border for folding. Drizzle cheese sauce over each, then place a tostada shell on top. Spread sour cream over each shell, then top with lettuce, tomato, and cheeses. Place smaller flour tortilla cutouts on top and tightly fold edges of large tortilla toward the center, creating pleats. Quickly invert Crunchwraps so pleats are on the bottom and they stay together.
In the same skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add Crunchwrap seam-side down and cook until tortilla is golden, 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining Crunchwraps.
