The Art of the Homemade Crunchwrap

Anyone who knows me, can attest to the fact that I’m unapologetically a Taco Bell fiend. My personal fave is the cheesy gordita crunch 🤤 but when I recently saw a Snapchat ad for a DIY Crunchwrap, you know I had to give it a whirl myself. We had them for dinner over the weekend, and they were a hit - quick, easy, and delicious! If you’re ready to level up your #tacotuesday or #fiestafriday at home, throw this winner into the mix. Now that I’m thinking of it, it would be perfect for game day as well! Oh, and don’t forget the margaritas 💃🏽 Full recipe below:


  • Ground beef (if you’re looking for healthier options, you could likely sub for ground chicken or turkey if that’s your thing!)

  • Taco seasoning

  • Large tortillas

  • Small tortillas (I used flour, but I am sure you could also use corn as long as they are soft?)

  • Chipotle mayo or sauce of your choice (naturally since I’m a cheesy gordita girl, we used baja sauce)

  • Tortilla chips

  • Sliced jalapenos

  • Salsa

  • Shredded cheese (we used the mexican/taco mix, but I’m sure you could use others)

  • Lettuce and/or sour cream (should you so choose – I left them out of mine... honest picky eater mistake 😉)


  1. Brown ground meat - drain grease and add taco seasoning/water per packet's directions.

  2. Lay large tortilla on a plate.

  3. Spoon selected sauce on to middle of tortilla, making a circle and leaving about 2 inches free around the edges for folding later.

  4. Lay tortilla chips down in shape of circle to cover sauce.

  5. Spoon seasoned ground beef over tortilla chips.

  6. Layer some jalapeños on top of ground beef.

  7. Add salsa if you prefer (careful, too much can make it soggy)

  8. Top with shredded cheese.

  9. Place small tortilla over center of the layered contents.

  10. Begin to fold large tortilla edges (from the bottom) over top of the small tortilla (on the top) towards the center, creating a hexagon-like shape. Hold them in place for a few moments, to try and prevent from unfolding.

  11. Turn stovetop on and spray a medium size pan with cooking spray.

  12. While carefully holding folds, place folded side face down in pan and let cook for a few minutes until golden brown.

  13. Carefully flip the Crunchwrap using a spatula, to toast the other side.

  14. Enjoy!
