Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme Recipe – Taco Bell Inspired (Healthy and Easy Version)


When the Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap first came out, I had to try it. Layers of taco beef, cheese, crunchy tostada, salsa, sour cream and yummy veggies, all rolled up in a soft, warm flour tortilla!! What’s not to love??? But what I don’t love is eating fast food, for the obvious health reasons. As well as the fact, that you don’t get to control the quality of ingredients that go into what you are putting in your mouth. So when I found some ideas on Pinterest for making my own Crunchwraps, I had to try it! But of course I had to put my own spin on it, because I can never just follow a recipe. ;)

The spin I put on the recipes on saw on Pinterest, is making it a healthier version. So not only can you control the quality of ingredients, but you also have a much “better for you” version of the original! A win win!! The other bonus to this recipe, is that its super easy and comes together very quickly! A perfect meal for those weeknights when you don’t have a lot of time, or you don’t have a lot of energy!
