Taco Bell Crunch Wrap Supreme Knock off

I think I can count the number of times I have been to Taco Bell on one hand.

I love tacos, burritos, enchiladas and lots of other Mexican inspired foods, but I just don't seem to go to Taco Bell.

I guess I am kind of deprived because people were kind of shocked!

If you too want Taco Bell, here is a recipe that is such a good knock off for the crunch wrap supreme.  I have never had it at Taco Bell, but I sure like this recipe and will add it to my Mexican recipe file.

Crunch Wrap Sumpreme
You will need:
6 large flour tortillas
6 small corn tortillas
1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
sour cream
shredded Mexican blend cheese
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes

Brown ground beef in a skillet, then add taco seasoning (according to package directions). Set aside.
Bake the corn tortillas in the oven at 400 degrees for a couple of minutes, until they are golden and slightly crunchy.

Microwave the flour tortillas, one at a time (because they cool off quickly), for about 10 seconds to warm them up; this will make wrapping easier. 

Lay out the flour tortilla. Spoon some of the seasoned beef into the center of the tortilla. Top with some shredded cheese. Place the crunchy corn tortilla on top of the cheese/beef; spread a dollop of sour cream on top of it, then toss on some diced tomatoes and shredded lettuce.

This is how it should look before you begin the folding. Starting with the bottom of the tortilla, fold the edge up to the center. Continue doing this until all of the tortilla is folded over, and the filling is entirely enclosed. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray.  Carefully place the crunchwrap, seam-side down, in the pan. Press with a spatula and cook on medium-low heat, for about 3 minutes, until the bottom is nice and brown. Flip it over and cook for another 3 minutes.

The mixture of the two kinds of tortillas is really good!  Plus all your typical taco toppings and fillings????  So good!  You will be saying Yo Quiero (fill in your last name) Bell Crunch Wrap Supreme and the best came from your own kitchen!

Adios amigos!
