Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme - Tips and Tricks

  • Skip a step. I love preparing a large batch of ground beef to have on hand. Simply add the taco seasoning while it cooks and portion it out before freezing. Then, warm before spooning into your Taco Bell crunchwrap supreme!
  • Layer strategically. Add the lettuce and tomatoes over the sour cream and place the cheese layer at the top. The outside will get toasty and the cheese will melt while the lettuce and sour cream will stay cooler in the center.
  • Don’t overstuff! Be careful not to get carried away with your fillings. This can make it more difficult to fold the tortilla over everything!
  • Want a healthier option? You can use carb balance tortillas or swap out sour cream for plain Greek yogurt.
  • Tip for a perfect drizzle: Load up a Ziploc bag with nacho cheese, then snip off a corner to make a mess-free squeeze baggy for easy cheese distribution.
  • Bring the heat. You can always add some hot sauce or spicy salsa for an extra kick.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Why are my tortillas breaking?

If they aren’t fresh, they may rip when trying to fold them over the fillings. Simply warm them in a skillet or in the microwave to make them more pliable.

Is there a way to make my homemade crunchwrap supreme vegetarian?

Yes! I suggest doing what Taco Bell does: replace the ground beef with refried pinto or black beans. Or, use your favorite plant based crumbles instead.

How do I store leftovers?

You can put them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.

But since these include fresh ingredients such as lettuce and tomatoes, it is best to eat them immediately after cooking.

Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme

Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme has layers of seasoned beef, veggies, sour cream, and plenty of cheese. Make some yourself in under an hour!
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 25 Min


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 6 street taco size flour tortillas
  • 2/3 cup nacho cheese sauce
  • 6 tostadas
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups grated colby jack cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups diced iceberg or romaine lettuce
  • Vegetable oil for cooking crunchwraps


  1. In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat, breaking it up into very small pieces.
  2. Add the taco seasoning and water, cooking according to the seasoning packet instructions.
  3. Heat nacho cheese sauce so it is spreadable.
  4. Place a warm burrito-size tortilla on your work surface. Spread a large spoonful of the taco meat to form a tostada-size circle in the center of the tortilla.
  5. Drizzle nacho cheese over the meat.
  6. Place a tostada on top of the meat and cheese.
  7. Top the tostada with desired amount of sour cream (I like to use the squirt bottles of sour cream for easy prep.)
  8. Add a mound of lettuce and tomatoes and then top with cheese.
  9. Place a street-size tortilla on the very top of the layers. Fold the burrito tortilla up and over the smaller tortilla to form a packet. Set aside and continue assembling crunchwraps.
  10. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place a crunchwrap folded side down into the pan and fry until golden brown. Flip and brown on the other side as well.
  11. Continue browning the crunchwraps one at a time, adding more vegetable oil as needed to prevent burning.
  12. Serve immediately.
  1. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Best eaten immediately after cooking.
  2. The street size tortillas are the perfect size - you can use soft taco size (or even more burrito size) and cut them to the same size as the tostada shell if the street size aren’t available. The crunchwrap fools up easiest without extra bulk from the smaller top tortilla.
  3. Warming the large tortillas makes them more pliable when it’s time to fold them up.
  4. Add the lettuce and tomatoes over the sour cream layer and place the cheese layer at the top - that way the cheese will get hot and melted while browning the outside of the crunchwrap and the lettuce and sour cream will stay cooler in the center.
  5. Vary the ingredient amounts for personal taste. Add hot sauce or salsa!
  6. I like to put the nacho cheese into a ziploc bag and snip the corner off to make it a squeeze baggy for easy drizzling over the taco meat.

  1. Yum! These are delish! We've been making them for several years and now young adults sons love them. I switch the first two ingredients spreading the nacho cheese first and then taco meat. So good! ��
