Taco Bell's Crunchwrap Supreme may look cool, but trust us, it's a nutritional mess. Our swap has less than half the calories (WAY less!), a teeny tiny fraction of the fat, and ALL the cuteness (and deliciousness) of the real thing. Check it out...
Directions: 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. Next, 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. Enjoy! MAKES 1 SERVING
At Hungry Girl we believe honesty is the best policy, so we need to admit that we've had a food crush on the weird-looking Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme since we first saw it on TV. In fact, we were completely mesmerized by the clever folding technique and intrigued by the array of delicious-sounding ingredients they stuff into this pound-packin' polygon. A soft tortilla filled with seasoned beef, cheese, a crunchy tostada shell, sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes sounds soooo delicious. But is it worth the 560-calorie, 24-gram-of-fat price tag? Uhhh, we think NOT. And don't think ordering it "Fresco Style" will save this fatty flop -- that version still packs in 17g fat and 470 calories. Lucky for us (and you!), we've whipped up a super-easy swap to kick that Crunchwrap craving. And the best part is, you don't have to be an origami expert to fold the thing -- we promise. So skip TB's version, and wrap up your own at home. Don't be lazy -- DO IT!
