CrunchWraps for a Crowd

Jump to recipe

Upgrade the fast-food crunchwrap with fajita meat, then make a bunch and turn the boring taco bar into a crunchwrap bar with all the toppings! It’s the ultimate party food for the big game, a summer party, or just for your picky family!

Cliff Notes: Use your favorite fajita spice blend to season skirt steak and chicken breast. Roast at 400° on top of a pan full of fajita veggies for 20 minutes or until the meat is cooked. Remove the meat and continue cooking the veggies until caramelized. Chop meat into small pieces and set aside. For the cheese sauce, heat a 12 oz. can of evaporated milk to a simmer. Mix 1/2 Tablespoon of cornstarch into 2 ounces grated medium cheddar cheese, then add it to the evaporated milk along with 4 ounces grated sharp cheddar, and 2 ounces grated American cheese, stirring between each addition. Heat to a low boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Add hot sauce to taste. Fry corn tortillas until crispy, sprinkle with salt and set aside. Assemble crunch wraps: On top of a flour tortilla, place about chopped meat, then a big spoonful of cheese sauce, then a crispy corn tortilla, then a smaller flour “street taco” tortilla, then sprinkle with grated cheddar and fold the edges of the bottom tortilla up over the fillings. Cook in a lightly oiled skillet until crispy and golden brown; flip and cook until the top is also crispy. To serve, cut in half and provide toppings for your guests to add to the pocked formed between the crunchy corn tortilla and the small flour tortilla.

Make It Your Own:
– Fill with any meat of your choice, or make vegetarian using beans or rice
– Make a pizza crunchwrap by adding pizza meats and cheeses, and providing various topping options
– Make a breakfast crunchwrap by adding bacon or sausage, scrambled eggs, and cheese, then various topping options

Simplify It:
– Instead of making your own spice blend, buy a pre-made spice mis
– Use a store-bought, jarred queso cheese sauce
– Purchase corn tostadas or use tortilla chips instead of frying corn tortillas

There you are, staring at a blank page, a bit of panic creeping in … tomorrow you’re going to have a house full of people for the big game, and you have no idea what to serve. You want something new, something fun, and most of all, something delicious.

Enter the Crunchwrap Bar! It’s just like a taco bar, but WAAAAY cooler, and LOTS more fun!

I decided to fill with fajita beef and chicken, but feel free to use seasoned ground beef or turkey, or make a vegetarian option with beans and rice. The toppings are almost as limitless as your imagination … stick with traditional taco toppings like lettuce, sour cream, and hot sauce; or go crazy and caramelize onions and peppers. But whatever options you come up with, be sure to let me know … I’m always looking for delicious ideas to try!
