Crunch Wrap Supreme

I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner the other night and my in house taste tester suggested we get Taco Bell.

I didn’t feel like going out so I decided to make my own Taco Bell.
I chose to make the Crunch Wrap Supreme. 

It was really easy and they tasted great!

What you need,

makes 4 

½ lb. ground beef
1 heaping tbsp. homemade taco seasoning
½ cup water
4 large flour tortillas
1 jar nacho cheese sauce, warmed up
1 bag of tostadas
1 1/2 cup sour cream
Shredded lettuce
Chopped fresh tomatoes
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
Salsa and extra sour cream for serving

Start by browning the ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the meat is fully cooked, drain off any excess fat.
Stir in the taco seasoning and the water. Turn the heat to medium low and let it simmer for 15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.

Wrap each tortilla in a damp paper towel and put in the microwave for about 15 seconds, this will make them soft and easy to fold.
Put about ¼ cup of the taco meat in the centre of the flour tortilla.
Pour 2-3 tablespoons of the cheese sauce over the meat. Lay on a tostada, top with 2-3 tablespoons of sour cream and some of the lettuce and tomatoes.
Carefully start folding the edges of the flour tortilla up over the centre. Just work carefully it will come together right in the centre.

Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the folded tortilla seam side down in the hot pan and cook for 2 minutes or until nicely browned. Flip and brown the second side.
I put the cooked Crunch Wrap Supremes on a sheet pan and placed them in a warmed oven until I could get them all cooked.

Here are the Tostadas I used, I found them in the Mexican Food isle at the grocery store.

These tasted just like Taco Bell’s, Delicious!

We loved them. Now, I just need to figure out the Fries Supreme and we are golden!
