Taco Bell is an all-time fave but even up until now, it’s something that isn’t as freely available as some people think, in the UK at least. Back in the university days in Sheffield, I lived 30 seconds away and that was one of only a handful of restaurants in the whole country! A few years later and it’s slowly starting to spread to other cities, but in a weird way it will always give me a bit of a nostalgic feel.
Back in the kitchen with another fakeaway dish, we recreated their Crunchwrap Supreme which combines quesadilla with taco, stuffed with mince, cheese and so much more. It was another phenomenal work from home lunch and we’ll definitely want to have it alongside their great mildly spiced chips next time.
TacoBell Crunchwrap Supreme
- 450 g minced beef
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 4 large flour tortillas
- 4 small flour tortillas
- 4 sliced cheese
- 4 taco shells
- 250 g sour cream
- 150 g shredded lettuce
- 200 g chopped tomatoes
- 200 g grated cheddar
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine minced beef and spices and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat and wipe skillet clean.
- To build the wraps: Add beef to the centre of 4 large flour tortillas, leaving a generous border for folding. Drizzle cheese sauce over each, then place a taco shell on top. Spread sour cream over each shell, then top with lettuce, tomato, and cheese. Place smaller flour tortilla cutouts on top and tightly fold edges of large tortilla toward the centre, creating pleats. Quickly invert Crunchwraps so pleats are on the bottom and they stay together.
- In the same skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add Crunchwrap seam-side down and cook until tortilla is golden, 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining Crunchwraps.
- Cut down the middle to show the beautiful layers and enjoy!
