Homemade Crunchwrap Supremes
Yes, you read that right. This is not a healthy living blog so I'm going to share this recipe with all of you! It actually wasn't too difficult to make, but kind of time-consuming to make more than one at a time. (Perhaps that is a sign not to share??) Here is a link to the original recipe.
Taco meat (we used refried beans that I flavored with taco seasoning)
Nacho cheese (this is surprisingly hard to find so I used salsa con queso instead)
Large flour tortillas
1) First, you cook up the meat or beans as this step probably takes longest. We used refried beans with a little taco seasoning for a vegetarian version.
2) Next, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and crisp up the corn tortilla. Mine didn't get super crisp so I wonder if a toaster oven would work better? I was worried about them burning in the toaster oven (but I ended up leaving one in too long in the regular oven anyways...) Please let me know if you try this out.
3) Next, heat up a little bit of the cheese so it is easy to spread around. I poured out a little into a ramekin and popped it into the microwave for 15 seconds
4) Assemble your crunchwrap as follows:
Beans/meat on the bottom
Crisp corn tortilla
Lettuce (I omitted lettuce on mine and used avocado instead. Delicious!)
|For those visual learners, here is a lovely picture guide. (Not drawn to scale, obviously)|
When it is assembled, fold over the sides and heat in a small frying pan (with a little Pam cooking spray), face down. The directions said medium heat with 3 minutes on each side. This didn't crisp them up enough for me so I left them on a little longer. (Just be careful you don't burn them in this step or you'll have to start all over again!)
And voila. Homemade crunchwrap supremes! They were delicious! And since you are in charge of the ingredient distribution, it was evenly distributed from start to finish. I will probably make these again the next time the craving hits.
