Crunchwrap Supreme

This copycat recipe has all the main components of the iconic Taco Bell offering: seasoned ground beef, nacho cheese sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and, most importantly, a crunchy tostada shell.


1 lb. ground beef1 tsp. 

chili powder1/2 tsp. 

ground paprika1/2 tsp. 

ground cumin

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper8 

large flour tortillas1/2 c. 

nacho cheese sauce4 

tostada shells1 c. 

sour cream2 c. 

shredded lettuce1 c. 

chopped tomatoes1 c. 

shredded cheddar1 c. 

shredded Monterey Jack1 tbsp. 

vegetable oil


  1. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine ground beef and spices and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat and wipe skillet clean.
  2. Stack 4 large flour tortillas and place a tostada shell in the center. Using a paring knife, trace around edges of shell to cut 4 smaller flour tortilla rounds.
  3. Build Crunchwraps: Add a scoop of ground beef to the center of remaining 4 large flour tortillas, leaving a generous border for folding. Drizzle cheese sauce over each, then place a tostada shell on top. Spread sour cream over each shell, then top with lettuce, tomato, and cheeses. Place smaller flour tortilla cutouts on top and tightly fold edges of large tortilla toward the center, creating pleats. Quickly invert Crunchwraps so pleats are on the bottom and they stay together.
  4. In the same skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add Crunchwrap seam-side down and cook until tortilla is golden, 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining Crunchwraps.
