These Easy Taco Crunch Wraps are my version of the Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme. Using a DIY taco seasoning, ground turkey, two kinds of shredded cheese, blue chips, and veggies – these are heaven on earth.
I. am. obsessed.
These Taco Crunch Wraps are a thing, and I’m LOVING it. I just wish it would have been a thing when I had wee little ones with little hands. Because trying to get small people to eat a taco is called MESS.
But THIS. The process of wrapping the shell around the filling, and lightly frying it in a pan, makes it SO MUCH easier to eat. I’m only making tacos this way from now until forever, because big people make taco eating messy too.
Let’s “taco ’bout” the details.
- ground turkey plus onions
- DIY taco seasoning (or use the packet seasoning)
- shredded cheese
- blue chips (or one large tostada)
- cherry tomatoes
- all the toppings…avocado, sour cream, and salsa
Below is a step-by-step Taco Crunch Wrap process.
Using large WARMED burrito size flour tortillas, spread:
- taco meat
- blue chips (or any kind of chips)
- more cheese
Than wrap it up. Fold in one side, and then wrap edges up one section at a time, until all sides are folded inward.
To make this wrap stay folded, you then must lightly fry it in a skillet, on both sides.
A couple of notes to consider:
- Be sure to slightly warm the tortillas, so that is soft and pliable to fold.
- Watch out for sharp corners on the chips that could puncture the tortilla You can crush them up, or simply use a round tostada shell (like Taco Bell does).
- Don’t over-fill the tortilla. If you do, you’ll have a mess. And we are trying to avoid the mess!
- Make either my 1) Easy Homemade Salsa, or my 2) Homemade Salsa Verde to go with these wraps.
BTW, you could basically wrap anything up in a crunch wrap. Beans, rice, chicken, steak, sweet potatoes, quinoa, and so on. Tailor it to your cravings.

Add some more olive oil to a skillet, and placing folded edges down first, brown on one side, and then flip to brown the other side. Repeat for additional crunch wraps.
Slice the crunch wrap in half, and serve with avocado slices, sour cream, and salsa.
- Use large burrito sized tortillas, and slightly warm them before wrapping to prevent tears.
- Feel free to use ground beef or chicken, instead of turkey.
- You can use different chips, just make sure there are no sharp edges to pierce the tortilla.
- Don't overfill the tortillas to avoid a MESS.
