CRUNCHWRAP

I am not big on eating fast food, but when I did, I loved eating Crunchwrap Supremes. During my tenure working in a Tex-Mex restaurant, I would recreate the famed Taco Bell meal for myself and my coworkers and would use any filling I wanted, with my favorite being chorizo. Below is my recipe for Crunchwraps with my twist on them, such as adding chipotle mayo and using Doritos for the crunch. It’s very simple to make, and very filling to eat. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

Large pack of 12inch or 14inch tortillas

Filling for crunch wrap; leftover chicken, ground beef, steak, or sauteed veggies. I used ground beef and chorizo

1 can of black beans

2 cups of mayonnaise

2 chiles in adobo sauce

Juice from half a lime

Salt

Black pepper

1 cup of frozen corn

Shredded cheese

Doritos, Fritos, or any type of tortilla chip

Shredded lettuce

1 large tomato, diced

Sour cream

Instructions:

  • First prepare the black bean spread, chipotle mayo, and toast the corn
  • Drain and rinse the black beans and cook to can instructions. Let cool off. Either mash the beans with a masher, or place them in a food processor for a smoother consistency
  • For the chipotle mayo, add the mayo, chipotle peppers, a sprinkle of salt and black pepper, and the lime juice in a food processor and blend
  • In a small frying pan, heat up the corn on a medium-high flame. As the corn is cooking, you will hear it pop, but do not be alarmed. Cook for about 5 minutes or until corn is charred
  • Once they are ready, proceed to building the crunchwrap. When you are adding the ingredients onto your tortilla, be careful not to overdo it as you want to be able to fold the tortilla shut
  • Heat up the tortillas, either by heating them on a hot skillet or pan, or directly on the stovetop flame. If you choose the latter option be very, very careful as to not burn yourself or let the tortilla catch fire
  • Transfer the tortilla onto your working space. Add a spoonful of the black beans and slowly spread them out about halfway across the tortilla
  • Add your protein option
  • Then add the chipotle mayo and sour cream
  • Add the corn, tomatoes, and lettuce
  • Sprinkle some shredded cheese
  • Then add the Doritos or any chips you have decided to use for the crunch
  • Sprinkle a bit more cheese on top
  • Then fold the edges of the tortilla over until it shuts. You can either heat this up on a frying pan over a medium heat on both sides, or use a panini press or any other type of sandwich press. I used the press so the cheese melts better and it gets all gooey
  • Serve and enjoy!!
