This recipe for a Taco Crunchwrap is basically if the “famous tiktok wrap” and the Taco Bell Crunchwrap got married and had a perfect delicious little baby. You’re gonna want to make this one yesterday!

I’m not a TikTok person and I probably never will be, but if I’ve learned one thing it’s to never say never. I just have enough social media in my life between Instagram and Facebook. However, sometimes it’s hard not to see the viral tiktok videos because they happen to cross over into different social media spaces like Instagram and Facebook. This particular TikTok video is one of the only ones that really has gotten my attention, soon after I saw it it invaded my dreams and I couldn’t get the idea for one of these, but Crunchwrap style out of my head!

I know some of y’all are a little annoyed with seeing them everywhere, but lemme tell ya this… Can you imagine how crazy it was when someone decided to start making pancakes or quesadillas or cheese and bacon on burgers!?? Cooking is meant to be creative and new techniques are meant to be made. I’m here for it.

And most importantly,

THEY MAKE THE MOST PERFECT TACO HOMEMADE CRUNCHWRAP.

THEY SERIOUSLY DO.

Have you ever tried folding a homemade crunchwrap? It’s one of the top ten most annoying things I’ve ever done. And guess what? Eric, Pepper, and I LOVE homemade taco crunchwraps. However, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve made them because they’re just awkward to fold, heat on the skillet, and I can never find the right sizes of tortillas and tostadas. When I saw this new method on folding a tortilla taking over the internet my brain instantly went to homemade taco crunchwraps!

I’ve been making these wraps now since early January and we’ve already had them probably 8 times. They are in fact my new favorite food group.

How to make and fold a Taco Crunchwrap:

large tortilla, cut in the middle, on a black cutting board

Start off by grabbing a large 10 inch burrito size tortilla. You can find these at any grocery store where you find the other tortillas. You can definitely use a lower point/calorie/carb tortilla, but I’ve found that it’s worth using the large tortilla because it fits all of the toppings perfectly. Sometimes using the real thing is just much better. Cut a line in the middle half way across the shell.

Ingredients: shredded lettuce, spoon, bowls of seasoned ground beef, salsa, refried beans, greek yogurt, cheddar cheese

The filling ingredients for one crunchwrap:

  • 2 tbsp fat free refried beans
  • 1/4 cup cooked 93/7 fat ground beef thats seasoned with taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheese
  • 2 tbsp nacho cheese dip. I’ve used the brand Fritos mild cheddar and jalapeño cheddar! There’s a few different brands. Look in the chip aisle at the grocery store or where the salsas are!
  • 1 tbsp non fat greek yogurt (you can use sour cream here too)
  • 8 bite size tortilla chips. I use the Tostitos brand. Obviously any brand/type of crunchy tortilla chip will work here, just be sure to measure if you care about points/calories it should measure to be around 50 calories or 1 WW point to work out the same.
  • about 2 tbsp finely chopped lettuce and onion
  • 1 tbsp salsa or a couple diced cherry tomatoes

My advice is to make and prep all of the ingredients and have them in the fridge to make multiple Taco Crunchwraps for dinner or for quick lunches! 3 out of the 4 weeks of January I have had these items in different containers to grab and make them in a moments notice. You could also easily make this work with leftovers from Taco Night!

If you want to make more than one crunchwrap then double, triple, quadruple the ingredients!

burrito shell with four quadrants: nacho cheese, beef,  crushed tortilla chips, refried beans, shredded cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and tomatoes

So, if you’ve never seen the famous video then here’s the gist of it. You take a tortilla and basically create four “quadrants”. Put different ingredients in each quadrant then fold it three times so it’s kind of like a triangle. Some argue that it’s a complicated quesadilla and I have to agree for some things, but as a taco bell crunchwrap dupe? It’s genius. The picture explains this step much better than I can actually write out so just look at that. Haha

You don’t have to put the ingredients in this exact order. I recommend making sure that the chips and the ground beef are on top of the nacho cheese because those are “loose” ingredients and the cheese gives them something to stick to. You can change things around a bit depending on taco preferences like no tomatoes/onions if that’s not your thing. Use chicken instead of beef. If you don’t love refried beans, cut them out. It’s your kitchen you make the rules.

folding the left bottom quadrant up on the crunchwrap

First, fold the left bottom side up.

folding both left quadrants over onto the upper right quadrant

Then, both of the left quadrants over onto the upper right quadrant and then fold it down onto the last quadrant. I’ve never used the word “quadrant” so much in my life. I really hope this is the correct way to use it. 😂

taco crunchwrap on the air fryer grate

Spray each side of the wrap with a little cooking spray and either throw it in the Air Fryer at 350 for about 5-6 minutes (or until lightly golden brown) or heat up a skillet and warm the wrap up for a minute or two on each side until golden brown. You can also just not heat it up, but I would make sure the fillins that need to be heated (mostly the refried beans and beef) are heated up.

I’ve seen some people put it in a panini press. I’m not fancy enough to own a panini press. Ha!

taco crunchwrap on a plate with a taco sauce packet

And there she is, folks! It’s just total delicious perfection.

taco crunchwrap with salsa and bottle of taco sauce

Pour some taco sauce on it and you’ve got yourself a seriously delicious “kind of” copy cat Taco Bell Crunchwrap.

In “skinny-ish” world this homemade crunchwrap cuts off about 6 WW points & 180 calories from the OG Taco Bell Crunchwrap version and I personally think it’s much more delicious. The folding technique is also MUCH easier which is honestly the most important part to me. Haha

I hope you enjoy this so much! Let me know if you try it in the comment section below. I sure do appreciate when you take a minute or two when you have the time to stop back by and rate the recipes that you try.

If you need another taco-y idea for dinner try my incredibly popular Chicken Street Tacos! Mexican Steet Corn would also make an excellent side dish for these!

Taco Crunchwrap

Kind of a copy cat Taco Bell crunch wrap, but with a much easier folding technique!
Print Recipe
burrito shell with four quadrants: nacho cheese, beef, crushed tortilla chips, refried beans, shredded cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and tomatoes
Prep Time:5 mins
Cook Time:5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 large burrito (10 inch) size tortilla
  • 2 tbsp fat free refried beans
  • 1/4 cup extra lean ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheese
  • 2 tbsp nacho cheese dip i use the fritos brand cheddar or jalapeno cheese dip, but you can find multiple different brands in the chip aisle! Rico's nacho cheese is also delicious.
  • 1 tbsp non fat greek yogurt I prefer Fage. You also can use sour cream.
  • 8 bite size tortilla chips I use the Tostitos brand, but any kind of chip will do
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onions and lettuce
  • 1 tbsp favorite salsa or a couple finely chopped cherry tomatos work too!
  • cooking spray (i prefer to use Avocado oil cooking spray)

Instructions

  • Make a cut into the middle of the tortilla and only go to the middle. (Pictures in blog post will describe this best, once you see it, you won't forget it!)
  • Look at the tortilla and divide the ingredients into four quadrants. On the left half spread the cheese dip then pile on the broken tortilla chips in one quadrant and ground beef in the other quadrant. On the remaining spread nonfat greek yogurt in one of the quadrants then add lettuce, onion, salsa (or tomatoes). In the last quadrant spread the refriend beans then add the shredded cheese on top.
  • Fold: First fold the bottom left quadrant up over the upper left quadrant then fold that over onto the upper right quadrant then fold all of those back down onto the bottom right quadrant. The end of result will look like a triangle.
    I know this might not make sense in written form so if you haven't seen the tortilla folding method yet please check out the step by step photos on my blog post above. It will make much better sense. Once you do it once you won't forget it!
  • You don't have to heat this up, but I would especially if your filling ingredients aren't warmed up. I do prefer it warmed up.
    Air Fryer: Spray each side lightly with a little bit of cooking spray then place in the air fryer and heat until lightly golden brown at 350 degrees for about 5-6 minutes.
    Skillet: Heat skillet over medium heat and spray each side of the wrap lightly with cooking spray. Heat each side for 2-3 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

  1.

You can obviously change things around a bit depending on taco preferences like no tomatoes/onions if that’s not your thing, use sour cream in place of greek yogurt, or use finely chopped chicken/ground turkey in place of the beef! If you don’t love refried beans, cut them out. It’s your kitchen you make the rules. I wanted to make a fully loaded option and then you can tweak to your preference!
  2. You can make a bunch at once then heat them up when your ready to eat. I wrap them in foil! 
  3. These ingredients are set for one wrap, but just double, triple, quadruple each amount if you’d like to make more! My advice is to make and prep all of the ingredients and have them in the fridge to make multiple Taco Crunchwraps for dinner or for quick lunches! You could also easily make this work with leftovers from Taco Night!

    These look Awesome! Cannot wait to try! Going to use ground turkey ’cause that’s what I have on hand.

  6. These come up as 13 points for me. 7 of those are for the tortilla. How did you get to 6?

    1. Hi Yvonne. I definitely didn’t write 6 points and the personal points link takes you to my recipe builder which states 13 points. They are 13 points using a regular tortilla. However! if you can find low carb burrito size tortillas (they do exist just not as easy to find) you can slash points almost in half. Hope that helps!

    I’m not sure how I didn’t know this recipe existed sooner but I’m sooooo glad I found it!! I’m a huge fan of yours and your recipes never disappoint! This recipe is no different. I made my own adjustments only because I’m weird and don’t like things like sour cream salsa, or refried beans but it was sooo good!!

    Amazing! I feel like I am eating fast food, with no guilt. Star has done it again!

    1. 5 stars
      Star, you knocked it out of the park again! I used tortilla strips for salads instead of chips. You could leave the chips out as long as you spray both sides of the wrap.

  20. 5 stars
    So. Stinkin. GOOD. Really hits the spot when I’m craving Mexican but don’t want to overindulge.

  21. 5 stars
    It feels like I’m eating something I shouldn’t be but still eating well within my points! This is also one of my husband’s favorites in the rotation. Thank you!!

  22. These were delicious! The entire family devoured them! I will be making these again for sure!!

  23. Made these today and OMG !!! I actually cut the points down to 8 ! Instead of 2 tbsp of the nacho cheese I did 1. Same thing with the beans and cheese. ALSO, I used a spinach wrap instead of a regular flour tortilla . It was AMAZING . Actually had 2 because I couldn’t help myself . So used 16 pts on dinner with a remainder of 5 left over still. SERIOUSLY …. AMAZING

  26. I LOVE LOVE taco crunchwraps but try not to get them much because I’m sure they are super unhealthy. Made this tonight and it was wonderful!

  27. 5 stars
    So good and perfect directions! My husband was so excited about his homemade crunch wrap. @ambermarie875

  28. 5 stars
    I love Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap supreme so I definitely had to try this. Due to some recent medical issues, I’ve had to go gluten and dairy free so wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I found a really good plant based nacho “cheese” dip and added some dairy free pepper jack “cheese”, made a recipe for vegan sour cream and honestly, it came out pretty darn good! The only thing is I have got to find a different GF tortilla because the ones I used are not the one . I can only imagine how amazing your original recipe using REAL cheese and non GF tortillas would be.

    These were amazing and large. Took your advice and used a really good tortilla from our Mexican market. Will make again for sure. Little time consuming since we couldn’t put more than 2 in the air fryer at one time.

    Yum, yum, yum! Made these tonight and already dreaming about using the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. They were fun to make and delicious. Thanks for another awesome recipe.

  38. 5 stars
    So this is awesome. I accidentally ordered the taco sized tortillas in my grocery delivery, so mine were small and thicker so a little hard to eat, but still so delicious. This will satisfy my fast food craving without all the calories!

    1. Yesss! I’m so happy you enjoyed and very happy to hear they worked out okay with the smaller tortilla!

  39. I love your beef & bean taco meat – could the taco seasoning recipe from that recipe used here? Wasn’t sure if it needed to be reduced at all because it’s just the ground beef/chicken/turkey? So excited to try this for dinner tonight! 🙂

    1. For sure! If making just the 1 lb beef/chicken/turkey I’d use a smidge less of each measurement of seasoning since it is beans and meat so it might just be a bit strong! If doing the beef and beans then same amount or if doing two lbs of meat same amount. I hope that helps and I hope you enjoy!

  40. 5 stars
    This was such an easy meal to prep, assemble, and cook. The possibilities are endless and just one wrap filled me up. Hubby approved as well!

  41. 5 stars
    I made these tonight. OMGoodness was this so so delicious. Even my 15 year old son said it was better than Taco Bell. I love the tortilla hack and cant wait to make all sorts of different things.

    1. a 15 year old said it was better than taco bell! Now that’s a compliment. So happy yall enjoyed!

      1. 5 stars
        This was absolutely delicious!! And so much easier than I thought it was going to be!! I will be making this for company once we get back to life!! Love your recipes!! Thank you!!

  42. 5 stars
    Will definitely make again! I didn’t want to dirty extra dishes or clean my air fryer, so I used the same skillet I cooked the meat in to heat and brown the tortilla after it was assembled and it was quick and good!

  43. I will make these tomorrow. But use ole tortillas. They are at Walmart. One point and so delicious!!!

    1. Yep that’ll work just fine, but you will probably have trouble fitting all of the ingredients because the ole tortillas are quite a bit smaller. I do enjoy those tortillas a bunch, but I find the larger tortilla + more ingredients is the perfect meal size for me, but the smaller one may be good for you! Hope you enjoy!! Let me know how it goes!

  44. Last night I made the Taco Crunchwrap and it was a hit. My husband and I have been in a rut eating the same old thing. My husband loves Mexican. I have been following you on Instagram for about a year and a half. My husband is sometimes reluctant to change when it comes to his food. Not that he is picky, just likes certain foods. I have to say he loved the Taco Crunchwrap and told me to “put this in the meal rotation.” I have to say the crunchwrap was very filling with lots of flavors and textures. Thank you for the idea.
    Wanda

    1. Yesss! That’s awesome. I’m so happy y’all gave it a chance and now have something new in your rotation!

  45. Can’t wait to try what looked like a complicated thing until I read through the recipe. Going to buy ingredients today!

  46. 5 stars
    SO GOOD! I wasn’t going to try the new wrap idea til I read your blog post. I thought it was a waste of the time. But after reading what you wrote, you’re right. New ways of making food is vital! I followed your directions exactly and must say I was quite impressed. I’ll never go to Taco Bell and get a crunch wrap again, but probably will still go for a plain chicken soft shell taco because sometimes it just sounds like the best.

    1. I agree! I’ll never get a crunchwrap from Tbell again, but most definitely grab the cheesy fiesta potatoes when they comeback! So glad you decided to give it a try and enjoyed!

  47. 5 stars
    This is amazing! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this post out! I’ve seen the video, but never seen it done with taco/crunch wrap fillings and never seen so much detail put into it so that it makes sense. Thank you thank you! This was one of the most delicious things that has come out of my kitchen thanks to you!!!!

  48. Thanks for posting this! I’ve seen several on IG but there’s no way to get all the info….
    Looks delicious too ! And easy…which is the best part!

  49. Excited to make this today! I think you forgot to put the tortilla itself in your ingredients 🙂

    1. I’m sorry. I did! I just updated it though. It’s a large/grande burrito tortilla (10 inch) I’ve used Great Value, Market Pantry, and Mission brand and they all work and they all come out to the same points/calories! I hope that helps.

  50. Definitely going to have to make this! What type of tortilla did you use? I guess the Ole one would be too small?

    1. I use a regular large burrito size tortilla you can find them at any store where you find the other tortillas. Sometimes they say “Grande”. I love the Ole low carb tortillas, but they just don’t work right for this. A bit too small for all the ingredients, but they would probably work just fine if you used less of all the ingredients. I hope you love this as much as we do! Let me know how it goes.
