Crunchwrap Supreme

  • INGREDIENTS:
    • 1 lb ground chicken
    • 1 package of taco seasoning
    • 2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 green)
    • 1 yellow onion
    • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
    • 1 tomato
    • 1 bag of shredded Mexican blend cheese
    • Nacho cheese (queso) – this is an optional add in!
    • Sour cream
    • Jalapeños
    • Black beans- 1 can- drained
    • 8 large tortillas
    • 4 hard taco shells
  • DIRECTIONS:
    1. Cut iceberg lettuce into strips and dice tomato
    2. Slice onion and peppers
    3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine ground chicken and taco seasoning. Cook for about 6-7 minutes until cooked through
    4. Sauté onions and peppers with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil until cooked tender. Add in black beans and warm up with peppers and onions for 2 minutes.
    5. Place cooked chicken, beans, onions, and peppers in a bowl
    6. Take the hard taco shells and break in half, place broken edges together to make a circle. Place on top of the large tortilla and cut around it to make a smaller flour tortilla – do this for all four hard taco shells.
    7. Warm up queso in microwave (if you choose to add it!)
    8. Assemble the crunchwrap
      • Take a large tortilla and put chicken, pepper and onion mixture in the middle (about the size of the small tortilla you just made)
      • Drizzle queso cheese on top (optional)
      • Then, place the hard shell taco circle on and cover with sour cream
      • Top with tomato, lettuce, jalapeno and shredded cheese
      • Place the final smaller tortilla round on top then fold together the larger tortilla
    9. Place in skillet top down (the side you just folded to) first, and cook for about 2 minutes on each side until browned and crisped. Be quick with your flip!
    10. Serve with hot sauce
  • TIPS: Hold pressure on the constructed crunchwrap before placing it in the skillet. I also added black beans the ground chicken, and veggie mixture for extra fiber and protein!
  • Pros: I LOVE Taco Bell, so when I stumbled across a “make your own crunchwrap” recipe from BroccYourBody, I decided to make my own. I substituted ingredients to have a little more fiber and vegetables. Overall, this meal is not overly expensive to make, and very good.
  • Cons: At the end of the day, this is still a crunchwrap supreme, and not the healthiest of meals. It also takes quite a few steps to make.
