Crunch into this Tasty Treat

Once again my love of Mexican-style food comes out. This is a low-calorie version of Taco Bell's Crunchwrap Supreme and much more tasty than theirs I'm sure! This is a great lunch to have on a lazy Saturday afternoon when the weather is gray and rainy. Serve this with lots of spicy salsa and maybe a good movie and you have a great afternoon for yourself! This recipe isn't as hard as it sounds so go ahead and try it.

Serving Size: 1
1 Large Low-Fat/Low-Carb Tortilla
3 baked corn tortilla chips
1/3 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like Boca Ground Burger)
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1/3 tomato, diced
1 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1/2 tsp. taco seasoning
  • Combine frozen soy crumbles, cheese and taco seasoning in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Warm tortilla for a few seconds in the microwave (making it easier to fold without ripping), and then lay it out on a flat surface. Place the soy crumble mixture in the center of the tortilla. Flatten the mixture into a circle, keeping it about 2 inches from the edge of the tortilla.
  • Layer the tortilla chips on top of the soy crumble mixture. Evenly top with sour cream, lettuce and then tomato.
  • Folding Instructions: Starting at the bottom of the tortilla, fold edge up to the center of the tortilla. Then going around the edge of the tortilla, repeatedly fold overlapping sections to meet the center, for a total of about 6 folds (until filling is completely enclosed).
  • In a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, over medium heat, carefully place the folded tortilla in the center of the pan (folded side down). Heat for 3 - 4 minutes. Carefully flip the wrap with a spatula and heat for another 30 seconds. Serve!
