Introduction: Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme - Copycat Recipe

About: My name is Troy. I'm a Mechatronics graduate studying Mechanical Engineering. I love making things and doing anything outdoors (especially SCUBA diving). I am a Community Manager for Instructables.

As a college student, fast food is my Achilles heel. When I'm cramming for a test or staying up all night writing a research paper, Taco Bell has been one of my best friends. Wanting to start saving money and eat healthier, this Crunchwrap Supreme copycat recipe was born.

Step 1: Cook Ground Beef

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 3/4 Cup Water
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons Seasoned Salt
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Directions:

  1. Brown meat in a large skillet on medium heat, drain fat
  2. Add 3/4 cup water
  3. Mix in seasonings
  4. Bring to boil for 5 minutes stirring occasionally
  5. Reduce heat

Step 2: Prep Ingredients

For the copycat recipe you will need the following:

  • Ground Beef (see previous step)
  • Queso (nacho cheese sauce)
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Sour Cream

If you'd like to add other ingredients not contained in the original Crunchwrap Supreme, the following make excellent additions:

  • Refried Beans
  • Black Beans
  • Olives
  • Rice
  • Corn
  • Avocados
  • Guacamole
  • Diced Onions
  • Pico de Gallo

Step 3: Tortillas and Tostadas

For the Crunchwrap Supreme, you will need to purchase or make the largest flour tortillas possible.

You can purchase or make your own tostada shells. To make your own, brush both sides of a corn tortilla with vegetable oil, bake on a cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes at 400°F.

Step 4: Tortilla

Warm the tortilla in a skillet.

Step 5: Ground Beef

Add ground beef.

Step 6: Queso

Add queso (nacho cheese sauce) over ground beef.

Step 7: Tostada Shell

Add tostada shell.

Step 8: Cheese

Add shredded cheese.

Step 9: Lettuce

Add shredded lettuce.

Step 10: Tomatoes

Add diced tomatoes.

Step 11: Sour Cream

Spoon sour cream.

Step 12: Fold and Brown Crunchwrap

Starting on one edge, slowly fold the edges around to the center.

Throughout the previous steps, you will have successfully heated the bottom side of the Crunchwrap.

Flip Crunchwrap and brown the top.

Step 13: Enjoy!

Now enjoy your finished copycat Crunchwrap Supreme. This is a more healthy and less expensive alternative to stopping by the local Taco Bell.

    It looks great and all but you've modified the Taco Bell version quite a bit by using actual, real beef. Not very authentic. ;7)

    I'm trying your version for the kids this weekend.

    I tried to find the fake beef at the store, but Taco Bell must have monopoly on the supplier. :) Let me know how yours turn out!

    You could probably cook some sawdust in grease with taco seasonings as a substitute :D

    Thanks for that laugh. :]

    Impressive! :)
    This recipe has "Friday Night Movie with the Boys" written all over it!

    I will be trying it out over the coming weeks, Thanks for posting!

    Omg amazing, can't wait to make it. Thanks for sharing

    Hahaha I will gladly accept that title! :)

    Awesome, I have to try this.

    Seeing how you are a community manager, college graduate and have great Instructables.... Maybe you should run for president next term under the "Instructables Party"! I think the Pentagon would have some interesting new implementations!

    probably healthier too! :-D

    Yeah this looks incredible, but I'm gonna have to stop by a Taco Bell for the fountain Big Red at least.

    That's a funny way to say Baja Blast.

    Rollin through a Taco Bell at 2:30 in the morning affords you special opportunities. Like free Baja Blasts because they are slow.... maybe something to do with them working at a Taco Bell at night lol

    Maaaan, none of our Taco Bells are open that late. 12 or 1 at the most if we're lucky.

    I'm glad that you tried it! These is one of my favorite recipes!
