  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup milk, plus more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
  • few drops Tabasco or 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning from taco sauce
  • For the Crunch Wrap
  • 6 10-inch flour tortillas, warmed

1. Make beef filling: Stir the water into the ground beef. Cook stirring often until browned. Add onion and whichever seasoning mix you are using. Add an additional 1/2 cup water and cook mixture for 10 minutes over medium-low heat.

2. Make cheese sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan. Add cornstarch. Stir in milk, water and keep stirring until smooth. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, taco seasoning and hot sauce. Stir until cheeses are melted and creamy. If needed add more milk.

3. To make crunch wraps: place 1 flour tortilla out on a cutting board. Add a spoonful of the meat mixture to the center and top with a similar size spoonful of nacho cheese. The amount you add is up to your

4. personal preference, but make sure to evenly distribute the meat and cheese sauce between all 6 tortillas. Top the meat and cheese mixture with a tostada, and then place 1 tablespoon of sour cream on top. Add a sprinkle of the marinated tomatoes and shredded lettuce on top and then, working counter clockwise, fold the edges of the flour tortilla up over the meat, cheese, tostada, tomato, and lettuce pile. Continue to fold until it is completely wrapped and in the shape of a hexagon.

5. Heat another medium skillet over high heat and add 2 inches of oil. Fry the Crunch Wrap on each side for about 1-2 minutes, until it gets a nice golden brown crust. Serve with a side of taco sauce, shredded lettuce and tomatoes.
