Veggie Crunchwrap
May 12, 2021

As many teenagers do, I went through a Taco Bell phase in high school. Anytime I knew my Dad wasn’t planning on making dinner, I’d swing through and grab a chalupa or two and savor the flavor. I’ve long since grown out of that phase, and I can’t actually recall the last time I had Taco Bell, but when I saw an ad for their Crunchwrap, I know I had to recreate it at home. Using a Bubba burgerĀ veggie patty makes this super quick and totally doable for vegetarians or an easy Meatless Monday menu switch-up. This is a crowd favorite at our house.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Makes 1 Crunchwrap

  • Original Veggie Bubba Burger patty, fully cooked and warm
  • 1 Burrito-size tortilla
  • Small tortilla, about the same size as your burger patty*
  • 3 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2-3 Tbsp. sour cream
  • Small handful baby spinach
  • 1/4 Cup diced tomato
  • Fresh cilantro, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat the avocado oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, then pan-fry the small tortilla in the oil for a couple of minutes per side, until crisp. Lightly salt if desired and set aside.
  2. In a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, warm the burrito tortilla just enough to make it more pliable. This will prevent tearing and make it easier to fold.
  3. Load up your warm burrito tortilla in the following order, layering everything in the center: shredded cheese, veggie burger patty, sour cream, diced tomato, baby spinach, cilantro.
  4. Place your pan-fried small tortilla on top of everything. Then fold the edges of the burrito tortilla around the small tortilla to make a little round burrito package.
  5. Place the crunchwrap seam-down in the large, hot cast-iron skillet for a minute or so to seal the seam, then flip and heat another minute or so on the other side.
  6. Serve warm.

*Make sure your small tortilla is the right size. You’ll want it to be about the same diameter as your burger patty, so if need be, you can use a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter to make it small, or you can cut a couple/few circles of the perfect size from one big burrito tortilla.
