I’m seriously into food. I love it. It makes me happy. A while back I went to a restaurant with a girlfriend and neither of us was fully satisfied with the offerings. As soon as the waiter left our table after taking our orders we both began rummaging in our bags. She came up with REAL butter and I with my secret stash of tea. We know what we want when it comes to eating and weren’t taking any chances.
That being said I also live a great on the go meal. This crunch wrap is what a busy moms dreams are made of. Portable. Self contained. Good now and still good later. AND….It freezes well! Heaven sent I tell ya!
But the true test is will they eat it? Um, if they like Taco Bell they will hands down like to see this guy in their lunch boxes.
So here is the skinny….
Ground beef -2 lbs will get you roughly 6 wraps so expand or decrease according to your need
Tortillas- one for each wrap
Shredded cheese- about 1 tbsp for each wrap
Salsa or sauce of your choice ( optional)
Large frying pan
First cook and drain the beef then assemble like so…. Tortilla, meat, cheese, sauce
Then you will need to get a large pan on medium heat to fry these guys
If you have non stick you probably can get by with no oil added, otherwise just add a scant amount to prevent sticking
Now the folding….
Continue all the way around until you have something like this
Press your palm into wrap to keep the tortilla from unfolding and place it fold side down in pan
It is important to keep the folds down when placing it in the pan. As it cooks press down gently to help the cheese to melt and “glue” the wrap together.
Flip and cook until golden brown on both sides ( if you plan on eating these immediately I would cook them just a bit longer to thoroughly heat it through. My kids will be reheating these at school so I cook them just enough to hold together )
Here is the pressing- make sure you do this if your wraps have to be carted to school or work- it ensures your wrap is not going to unwrap itself
I got these ones a little toasty but after they cool I’ll toss them in baggies and into the freezer for a quick grab and go lunch!
Hope you liked this!
