I have a new obsession and YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT.
Its name is a crunchwrap and it has all of the following:
and it is all wrapped up in a huge soft flour tortilla and pan-fried until it’s crispy on the outside and gooey-delicious on the inside.
The thing about a crunchwrap is that it doesn’t need to be bossy in the flavor department. I found the basic-taco-salad-ness of the flavors to be deliciously nostalgic and yummy, and besides, the main event here is the way it’s all structured. Its form. Its layers. Its texture. That is what will have you daydreaming at 3pm. The juicy drips, the gooey-ness, the crunch. Feels like peak humanity, tastes like sheer joy.
Crunchwrap has become a verb in my life. “Should we Crunchwrap that?” is a real sentence that I say. I have Crunchwrapped sweet potato, black beans, taco meat, queso, Hot Cheetos (do it), tortilla chips, avocado, and more. I am proudly becoming a Crunchwrap Master.
Anything you would put in a taco salad? Crunchwrap the heck outta that.
We should probably pay tribute to the fact that the Crunchwrap is a Taco Bell thing, right?
Okay, in all honesty, I’ve only eaten at Taco Bell once, and since it was past midnight, I don’t remember much, and really, isn’t that everyone’s Taco Bell experience? So in full disclosure, I’ve never eaten a true Taco Bell Crunchwrap which, it’s just, I know. I have a late night Bell run in my very near future.
I’m more of a Taco John’s girl myself (Potato Oles all tha wayyyy) but today we need to focus on what really matters.
You. Dinnertime. The Crunchwrap. The drippy, cheesy, hangry-face Crunchwrap.
Just like the Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell – layers of taco meat, pepper jack queso, tostada, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, salsa, and hot sauce. SO YUM.
