now i like them. a lot. but the husband loves them. a lot lot. in fact, i think he considers himself a connoisseur of Crunchwrap Supremes.
anyway- since i can't justify going to Taco Bell ever, because i'm not an overworked & underpaid college student, i have to settle for my own creation.
and damn it's good. so good.
Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme (adapted from Full Bellies)
large flour tortillas (burrito style)
1 lb ground beef (i use 93% because then i don't need to drain it)
1 package taco seasoning
bite size tortilla chips
jarred queso style cheese
Directions: Brown your ground beef & add the taco seasoning (according to package directions)
Microwave (1 @ a time because they tend to cool off pretty quickly) the flour for tortillas for about 10 seconds.
Working quickly- spread a dollop of sour cream in the center of the tortilla.
Top with a good amount of ground beef (i got 4 crunchwraps out of 1 lb)
Then add some shredded cheese
Next, layer on the tortilla chips (i used 6 or 7 bite sized rounds)
Plop on some queso style cheese sauce (i heated up in the microwave for a few seconds)
Toss on some diced tomatoes & shredded lettuce
Now get your pan ready- put a little butter in a large frying pan & turn on medium/low heat. Once it starts meting it's time to start wrapping your crunchwrap...
It's hard to explain how to wrap it, but you basically want it to look like the above picture. Basically, start at the bottom & work your way around.
You'll have an open spot on top- that's ok.
Now you want to gently place it folded side down in the pan:
let it cook for a few minutes (like 3 or so) until it's browned (don't give in to the temptation to flip it early because it'll fall apart...believe me, i know) & then flip it over:
give yourself a pat on the back or make sure no one's looking & do a wicked roundhouse kick. because you're about to put Taco Bell out of business.
ok, not really. because Taco Bell still has Chalupas- oh man, Chalupas.
