Taco Bell has dubbed their’s “Supreme”, so I’m calling mine “Almighty”.

These are so addicting. It’s everything you love about burritos and tacos, with the flavor and crunch. Also, bonus: you can eat it with one hand.

I’ve made these for groups before, because they are really fun to build and customize. People love build-your-own stuff, and then you don’t have to fret as a host wondering if everyone will like what you’re serving, because they can pick and choose what to include in.

You can really put whatever you like inside them. My fiancé loves refried beans in his. I love avocado in mine. The soy chorizo adds another layer of protein and a little kick, and the fresh lettuce and veggies brings a brightness to every bite. Of course we love to put hot sauce on ours as we eat as well!

First, prep all filling ingredients: drain beans (or make refried beans), chop up veggies (or buy/make pico), cut up avocado (or make guacamole). You can get creative with the fillings, just remember you don’t want too much liquid.

Next: crisp up the corn tortillas. Just put a very small amount (1/2 tsp) of oil in a pan over medium heat and let them get crispy. If I’m feeling healthier, I will use spray or brush oil on the tortilla, but they don’t crisp up quite as much (still good!).

You want those nice brown spots. Be patient and let it crisp.
Then, layer the ingredients on the flour tortilla: soy chorizo, beans, avocado/guacamole, tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lettuce. Taco bell likes to use the corn tortilla in-between the meat and veggie layers, but I like to put mine on the top because: 1) it stays crispier, and 2) it helps to hold in the fillings.

Below is a video showing the folding technique. Keep one hand on top of the crunch wrap to hold the top as you create the folds. The thing to remember is to have the pan/griddle hot and ready, because you’ll want to throw them on as you fold them. They don’t stay folded well off-heat until they are cooked.

Place them on the grill fold-side-down. If you have a griddle like mine, it will cook both sides at once and compress it well for you, but you can also just do these in a pan, apply a little pressure to the top with a spatula, and flip them halfway through.

Waiting time…

When it is done, it will be nice and browned. They are HOT, so let them cool at least a few minutes before biting in.
