Beefy Crunch Wrap Supremes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg (8 count) large (burrito sized) flour tortillas
  • 1 pkg (8 count) fajita sized tortillas (quite a bit smaller)
  • 2 pounds of lean ground beef
  • 2 packages of taco seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • fresh, diced tomatoes
  • shredded lettuce
  • 1 jar of queso dip or nacho cheese sauce
  • Doritos chips or tortilla chips
  • optional - salsa or taco sauce
  • optional garnish - sour cream, cilantro.

Written Method: 

The idea here is to create a complete package of crispy tortilla with all the wonderful "inside stuff" you want.... saucy ground meat, cheese sauce, fresh produce, crunchy chips, you name it!  But even the large, burrito style, tortillas won't be big enough to completely enclose the filling.  You'll need to cut circles out of the smaller tortillas as a "lid" for the bottom tortilla.  We did this by just cutting a circle around a bowl with a sharp paring knife. 

Brown your ground meat, then add the taco seasoning, water and cumin.  Adjust the seasonings as you see fit.  Turn the meat off when sauce has thickened and reduced - about 5 minutes. 

Add your filling to the large burritos - cheese sauce, beef, lettuce and tomatoes, chips, and taco sauce if desired.  Add the smaller tortilla "lid" over the filling.  Start folding the larger burrito up in sections, going around the circle sequentially. 

Add the burrito to your griddle or skillet over medium to medium high heat and use something heavy to press the wrap as it grills on the bottom. I had more success with grilling seam side up first.  Flip when the bottom browns and grill the other side. 

Remove from heat, cut in half and serve with your garnishes - sour cream, cilantro, taco sauce, etc
