How to Make the Crunchwrap Step by Step:
- Gather Your Essentials: Round up your arsenal of ingredients – flour tortillas, ground beef (or a meat alternative), taco seasoning, luscious nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, crispy lettuce, diced tomatoes, sturdy tostada shells, and EVOO.
- Sizzle the Beef: Heat up your skillet and let that ground beef sizzle away. Toss in the taco seasoning for a flavor fiesta. Afterward, say goodbye to any extra grease. (Hot tip: Before seasoning, give your ground beef a whirl in a food processor to achieve that authentic Taco Bell texture!)
- Toast the Tostada: Pop those tostada shells into the oven and let them toast to a crispy golden perfection at 350°F for about 5 minutes.
- Wrap It Up: On a clean surface, unfurl a large flour tortilla with gusto. At its heart, lay down a generous scoop of the cheesy nacho sauce.
- Layer the Beef: Plop a spoonful of that spiced-up ground beef onto the cheese layer.
- Tostada Tango: The star of the show, the crispy tostada shell, takes center stage on the beefy platform.
- Creamy Cloud: Let a fluffy cloud of sour cream descend upon the tostada.
- Veggie Parade: Sprinkle a colorful confetti of shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes to join the culinary celebration.
- Fold and Seal: Get ready to tango with your tortilla. Begin folding the edges over the flavorful ensemble, shaping it into a splendid hexagonal masterpiece. Fold, fold, and fold until it’s fully sealed, a true Crunchwrap work of art.
- Heat and Delight: In a heated skillet with a touch of vegetable oil, let your wrapped Crunchwrap sizzle away, seam-side down. Cook until it’s gorgeously golden and crispy on both sides.
- Serve with Gusto: Once your Crunchwrap Supreme emerges from the skillet, give it a moment to cool down a tad, then serve it piping hot!
