Taco Bell is one of my guilty pleasures. I rarely go (we're talking maybe once every three months or so), but every once in awhile I just can't resist. I just love the smooth queso sauce, caramel apple empanadas, and pretty much everything on the menu.
With that being said, I've never tried replicating anything from their menu. Then while browsing on Pinterest, I saw this pin, and decided I had to give the crunchwrap supreme a try on my own.
Ingredients (for one)
-1 large, 10" tortilla
-2 tbsps refried beans
-1 tbsp cheese sauce
-1/3 cup ground beef, cooked with seasoning
-1 hard taco shell
-1/3 cup shredded lettuce
-2 tbsps shredded taco blend cheese
-1 small, fajita sized tortilla
1. First, preheat a skillet over medium heat. Next, take your tortilla, and spread the refried beans in an even circle in the center. Leave plenty a room around the edges - probably about a 2 inch diameter, or so. Top refried beans with cheese sauce and ground beef as the next two layers.
2. Break a hard taco shell in half, and place on top of your first three layers. Top with shredded lettuce as the next layer, than shredded cheese. Finish with small tortilla.
3. Now, this is the tricky part. Start with the bottom tortilla, fold the edge up to meet the smaller tortilla in the center. Continue doing this is a clockwise direction until all of the edges meet in the middle, and your fingers are holding down a little bit of the tortilla.
4. Using a little bit of magic, pry off some of your fingers, and place a spatula on the top of your crunchwrap. Very, very carefully, flip it over, and place the crunchwrap seam side down on the skillet.
5. Cook seam side down for about 4-5 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Flip over, and cook on the opposite side for an extra three minutes or so.Pin It
