I couldn’t wait to post this recipe because it turned out SO good. For reals. I may just live off of these for the unforeseeable future. They were incredibly easy to make and fun to eat. Not to mention delicious! I chose to put my nacho cheese in a pastry bag to make assembly easier and it worked really well. Also, I highly recommend using nacho cheese if at all possible. At my grocery store they keep it in the pasta aisle in the same general area as the Velveeta cheese. I bet these would be awesome for kids to eat as well because they were so much easier to eat than tacos. And they look cool. So make them!
- 5 large flour tortillas
- 5 small tostada shells
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 package taco seasoning
- sour cream
- nacho cheese (or shredded Mexican blend cheese)
- shredded lettuce
- diced tomatoes
Brown ground beef in a skillet, then add taco seasoning (according to package directions). Set aside.
Working with one flour tortilla at a time, microwave for about 10 seconds. Lay out the flour tortilla and spoon some of the seasoned beef into the center. Top with some nacho cheese (or shredded cheese). Place the tostada shell on top of the cheese and spread a dollop of sour cream on top of it. Top with diced tomatoes and shredded lettuce.
Starting with the bottom of the tortilla, fold the edge up to the center. Continue doing this in a clockwise or counter-clockwise movement until all of the tortilla is folded over, and the filling is entirely enclosed. If your filling isn’t entirely enclosed, cut out a circle from another flour tortilla and place it on the exposed area, then wrap the tortilla again.
Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Carefully place the Crunchwrap, seam-side down, in the pan. Press with a spatula and cook on medium-low heat, for about 3 minutes, until the bottom is nice and brown. Flip it over and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
