Crunchwrap Supreme


Do you ever get a craving for a crispy, melty, meaty Crunchwrap Supreme from your favorite Mexican fast food joint? Who doesn’t love the combination of a soft flour tortilla packed with taco fillings and wrapped around a crunchy tostada shell!

Is it possible to recreate this tasty treat at home?

You bet it is! With just a few simple ingredients like flour tortillas, ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, plus the secret crunchy element – tostada shells or tortilla chips – you can make Crunchwrap Supremes in your own kitchen that taste even better than the drive-thru.

What is the best ground meat to use for the taco filling?

While ground beef is classic, you could use any ground meat that suits your tastes – ground turkey, chicken, pork or whatever your preference. The key is to season it boldly with taco seasoning while cooking to infuse tons of flavor before assembling your Crunchwraps.

How can I get my tortilla to wrap without cracking?

Such a great question! Cracking tortillas are the bane of a perfect Crunchwrap experience. Simply warming the tortillas for 20-30 seconds in the microwave before filling and wrapping makes them soft, pliable, and unlikely to split open.

What goes inside a supreme Crunchwrap anyway?

Customize them however you wish! But typical fillings are spicy ground meat, melty nacho cheese sauce, cool and crisp lettuce, juicy tomato slices, Mexican blend shredded cheese and a dollop of creamy sour cream. Divide it all between the toasty warm tortilla and the crunchy tostada shell or tortilla chips.

What’s the best way to get that perfect golden crispiness?

A quick turn in a hot skillet with a bit of oil allows the Crunchwraps to fry up beautifully with a crispy bottom tortilla and gooey, melted fillings inside. Just a few minutes per side to toast perfection before serving your craveable crunchy creations.

Now that you know the secrets to making these at home, you can skip the drive-thru and enjoy hot, melty, meaty and crispy Crunchwrap Supremes anytime the craving strikes! What could be better than that?

Crunchwrap Supreme Recipe


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • ⅔ cup nacho cheese sauce
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • 5 large flour tortillas
  • 4 tostadas (or 2 cups tortilla chips)
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • ⅓ cup water


  1. Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat until fully browned. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Add water and taco seasoning to the beef. Stir and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
  3. Soften the flour tortillas by microwaving them covered with a damp paper towel for 20-30 seconds.
  4. Place ¼ cup of seasoned beef in the center of each tortilla, followed by nacho cheese sauce, tostada shell (or chips), sour cream, lettuce, tomato, and shredded cheese.
  5. Use a quartered tortilla piece to cover the center, then fold the edges of the larger tortilla over it, sealing the fillings inside.
  6. Fry each Crunchwrap in a skillet with a bit of oil until golden on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Chef’s Tips:

  • For best results, separate hot and cold fillings in the Crunchwrap.
  • Any ground meat or pulled chicken can replace ground beef.
  • Crispy tortilla chips can substitute tostada shells; just remove sharp edges.
  • Pre-heating tortillas prevents cracking.
  • Use a griddle with a light oil coating to cook multiple Crunchwraps simultaneously.

Enjoy this delectable Crunchwrap Supreme as the star of your next taco night!
