Crunchwrap Copycat

I have a small confession to make. I love Taco Bell. 🙂 We don’t eat there very often, but when we do it’s the Crunchwrap Supreme I order every time. Have you ever had one? Well, let me fill you in if you haven’t.

Crunchwrap Supreme copycat is loaded with seasoned ground beef, nacho cheese, sour cream, lettuce and tomato all wrapped inside a large flour tortilla. There is a corn tortilla hidden inside that gives it that crunch we all love! These wraps are amazing, naughty, and worth every calorie! 😉

Crunchwrap Supremes are loaded with seasoned ground beef, nacho cheese, sour cream and a hidden corn tortilla all wrapped inside a large flour tortilla.

To say these are delicious would be a big understatement. They were amazing, packed full of flavor and actually better than the original, in my opinion.

My family totally loved them too! I know these will be something I make often when we are in the mood for a fun Mexican food night!

Author Life in the Lofthouse


  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 jar nacho cheese or Queso cheese dip
  • 6 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 6 tostada shells or corn tortillas* see note
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • cooking spray


  • In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook and crumble ground beef and onion, until beef is no longer pink. Drain grease. Stir in the taco seasoning mix, water and minced garlic. Continue to cook until it starts to boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Warm the nacho cheese sauce or queso cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Place the flour tortillas on a large plate. Microwave for 20 seconds to warm them.
  • Lay one flour tortilla on a flat surface. Spread 1/2 cup of taco meat onto the center of the tortilla. Drizzle a couple Tablespoons of nacho cheese over the meat. Top meat with one tostada shell or crispy corn tortilla *see notes below. Spread a thin layer of sour cream over the tostada shell. Top with lettuce, tomato and shredded Mexican cheese.
  • To fold the crunch wrap, start with the bottom of the flour tortilla and fold the edge up over the center. Continue to work your way around, folding the flour tortilla over the center fillings. There will be a spot left open in the center; cut a piece of another flour tortilla, and tuck it in the center, so it's fully covered.
  • Repeat with all remaining tortillas, tostadas and fillings. You’ll have 6 crunch wraps total.
  • Spray a large, non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Place one crunchwrap seam-side down onto the skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden-brown. Carefully, flip over and cook other side until golden-brown. Repeat process with all crunch wraps. Serve immediately.


*If using corn tortillas, heat oven to 425° F. Place corn tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes or until crispy.

  1. I have also had these on my pinterest board for months lol. Now I am inspired to make them. I love taco bell also, but never tried the crunchwrap. I have done at at home copycat of there cheesy fiesta potatoes. It is to die for.

  2. It might make it easier if you use a Foreman grill to brown them up. I’m thinking it would be more like how they do it at Taco Bell and no flipping.

    1. Excellent idea. I’ve been making Crunchwraps at home for a good while now and never thought to use my Foreman grill. Thanks!

  3. If you have a propane stove, instead of microwaving your tortilla’s, just place one on the grating above the flame, and let it heat that way, it get’s it crunchy and heats it easily.

  4. Made these tonight! So delicious!!! I found some large tortillas that fit it perfectly. One of the easiest meals I made so far on your site. My son devoured it….thanks for posting these amazing meals.

  5. If you enjoy their lunch/dinner crunchwrap, you should try their breakfast steak crunchwrap. My husband bought one, and I believe it comes with a hashbrown built into it (replaces the tostada part). YUMMY! 🙂 These look delicious…and yes I love me some taco bell. Not sure where you live Holly, but if you have a Qdoba — you should try there too! It’s my favorite fast mexican food! Get the naked chicken queso burrito with black beans, white rice, pico de gallo, corn salsa and salsa roja…with a plate of chips — and you will be in heaven. 🙂

      ahhh, I miss Qdoba soooo much!! I grew up in Tulsa, ok and was blessed with Qdoba and taco Bueno in addition to taco bell, Chipotle, etc. i moved east as an adult (Charleston & greenville, sc and now Asheville, nc) and forgot about Qdoba completely. they blow Chipotle out of the water, their food is incredible! thank you for reminding me of some good memories with old friends- it was one of our favorites and we shared some great laughs there 🙂

  6. This is the one thing I order from Taco Bell. . . .and it’s usually every Friday for lunch!! Now, I can have it more often out of my own kitchen. Thanks for the creativity!!

  7. Made these the other day. Boy, were they good. I popped them into my Cuisinart panini maker with the flat grill for a few minutes. Great leftover for lunch the next day. Thank you!

  8. Thank you for an excellent recipe. I found your recipe on Pinterest. Anyone planning to make this recipe I made my own taco seasoning. I fried up sweet onion and garlic in a pan the placed one pound of top serloin in the pan and sprinkled a teaspoon of the seasoning I made. I purchased the brand of flour tortilla- Guerreo burrito grande. I used the Queso made with real cheese (medium). My son and I can’t tolerate a lot of spice so I only drizzled the cheese sauce. If you want more spice read the label as I came home with medium which I did not notice when I purchased the jar. It is good and you could always add some hot peppers. This recipe is only basic what’s great is you can add whatever else you like ie; bell pepper, hot peppers, etc. Reminder these are filling so you can serve with a salad as eating one is enough.

  9. Crunch wrap Delush! We used the Taco Bell seasoning and Old ElPaso Tostada Shells wrapped in an Old ElPaso 12 inch super soft shell. WOW!
    Family Favorite!
    Thank You!

  10. Hey, I live in Canada, does anyone know where to get those flat tostada shells? Do you have any ideas if I cant find them? Thanks for your help! 🙂

    1. Sam, I know my reply is way-late, but I just tried this recipe and had to use crunchy taco shells in place of the tostadas since I can’t get them here in Germany, either. I just break the crunchy shells in half and place them on top. Works like a charm.

    2. hi! we found them at metro in the Mexican section with the taco kits and everything. they were in a tall bag.

  11. Made these for “meatless Monday” using veggie refrieds in place of the taco meat and they were Delish! Thanks for sharing:-)

  12. Yum!! We made this tonight with the following changes:
    – substituted plain yogurt for sour cream
    – used 2 flour tortillas (I could not successfully wrap the Tortilla, as pictured)
    – only used shredded fiesta cheese
    – served with avocado

  13. Instead of cutting another flour tortilla, buy the large burrito ones and the smaller taco ones. Lay the smaller taco ones on top as a ‘cover’ for that whole before you wrap it.

    AWE C’MON!! You KNOW you want a bigger Crunch Wrap!!

  14. I have made this twice in 3 weeks (5 times if you include leftovers), and it is really yummy! The first time, I found working with the tortillas to be quite tricky, but I finally found XXL tortillas and they work perfectly. I live in Germany and couldn’t find tostadas, so I used hard taco shells instead. They work fine when you break them in half and lay them on the ingredients. The only thing I do differently is to add the tostada absolutely last. The first time I made these, I put everything in the exact order the recipe says to do it in, and the crunchy shell was totally soggy by the time it was grilled and ready to eat. I make sure to add the lettuce last (the least wet ingredient) and put the tostada on top of that. Then it’s really perfect. Thanks for yet-another winner. My husband devoures these!

  15. I worked at Taco Bell for years the way you make a contract the only thing you’re missing is refried beans first you put the refi beans on the Tortilla and then you put the Shell the tostada shell on top of it then you put everything else that’s what holds the tostada shell in place so won’t be moving all around when you sit and make it like a baby diaper

  16. How is this an actual copycat? This is assembled like taco bell but with generic ingredients as the recipe this would taste nothing like Taco Bell

      1. ROFL!!!! OOOOH I love when people hold their own against trolls! Just saw this on your Meal Plan Monday menu and can’t wait to try them! Ya know the one copycat recipe I want? Meximelt!?!?! Our Taco Bell doesn’t make those anymore and they are the only thing I ever liked. WAAAAHHHH!!!

    Wow! These have no right to be so delicious. even the picky kindergartener was a fan. We’ll definitely be making these again.

  25. We made these last night and they were delish! Followed the recipe exactly, except we put the crunchwarp in the george forman grill instead of the skillet and it cooked evenly on both sides, no flipping required. Love all the healthy versions to try next time! : )
