It's time to share some of the delicious Pinterest inspired recipes we've been trying around here. Up first is one of my favorites- Crunchwrap Supremes! It's so simple I wonder how I've never thought to do it at home on my own before. Kudos to Full Bellies, Happy Kids for coming up with the obvious here. It's much appreciated!
The great thing about these crunchwraps is that you can completely customize them to your liking. If someone wants black olive slices in theirs, go ahead. If someone wants salsa, hook 'em up. Don't like sour cream? Leave it out! Easy peasy! You can also make them a little healthier than what you find at the fast food joint. Try making them with ground chicken or turkey meat. Use fat free sour cream and reduced fat cheese. You could even try healthier tortilla wraps. Again, it's all up to you!
Ingredients (for a basic Crunchwrap Supreme):
- Large (burrito size) tortilla shells
- Small tostada shells (or as FB,HK used, tortilla chips)
- Queso sauce
- Pre-cooked taco meat (I obviously used beef)
- Shredded lettuce
- Shredded cheese
- Sour cream
Other options could include, but are certainly not limited to:
- Taco Sauce (I usually poor some on as I go)
- Bell or banana peppers
- Black or refried beans (which I've tried and really enjoyed)
- Tomatoes (which are actually in Taco Bell's version)
- And whatever else you think might appeal to you!
|Here's what we used the first time we made them|
(I had the taco meat on hand as extra from another meal that week)
You're ready to eat!! You can cut it in half to make it easier to handle, but with everything sealed into the wrap it's pretty manageable as is. If you were to cut it open though, you'd find this nice layered little pocket.
And if you're like me and tend to have taco meat in the fridge at almost any given time, it's great to make single servings with. Nights when the hubs has school and the kids want chicken nuggets, I can make myself a delicious meal that wasn't frozen in some way...
Thanks again to Full Bellies, Happy Kids for thinking to do this at home and sharing it with the world. I'll definitely be paying more attention to some of my favorite meals at restaurants and fast food places to see what else I can recreate at home!
