Copycat Bacon-Taco Crunchy Wrap

This tasty twist on the fast food favorite is made better with bacon!

Ingredients

8
slices bacon
1
pound ground beef
1
packet Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1
onion, diced
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
jalapeño or habanero pepper, minced
4
Old El Paso™ crunchy taco shells
8
ounces cheese
Lettuce, chopped
Tomato, diced
Sour cream, if desired
8
(8-inch) Old El Paso™ soft tortillas

Directions

  • 1 Cook the bacon in a frying pan until browned and crisp. Remove bacon from the pan but keep the fat. Add the beef and cook until brown, about 10 minutes. Remove the beef but keep the fat in the pan.
  • 2 Cook the onion in the remaining fat until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic and hot pepper and cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the beef back to the pan. Drain any excess fat if there is any remaining. Add in the seasoning and cook 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of water. Simmer until the water has mostly evaporated and the sauce is thick.
  • 3 Break the crunchy taco shells in half and top with an ounce of cheese each. Bake a short time, just long enough to melt the cheese and brown the shell. Remove from oven. Lay out the soft tortillas and add in the taco mixture. Top with the cheese-covered crunchy shell, folding the corners that stick out so they don’t pierce the tortilla. Top with lettuce, tomato and bacon. Wrap the edges of the tortilla over to the top of the pile, forming 5 flaps that meet at the top.
  • 4 In a frying pan with a little butter or oil, place the wraps flap-side down to brown and seal. Flip the wrap over to brown the other side. Serve immediately.

Step By Step  

You've seen these wraps at fast food places. Now make them at home!

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Our crunchy wraps are even better because we add bacon!

These copycat wraps are such a big hit because they essentially combine a burrito and a taco. Why choose when you can have both in one?

Just like the taco and burrito before it, this wrap is endlessly customizable and can be made to your exact specifications. 

Today, like most days, I was craving some bacon, so I made mine taco-seasoned-BLT style.

After you cook the bacon, brown up the beef in the bacon fat. When the beef is browned, remove it from the pan but keep the fat in the pan.

Get the onion nice and brown next. Then add some garlic and hot pepper. I used a habanero, but you can use a jalapeno if you don't want it to be as hot. After this, add the beef back to the pan and stir in the spices.

Meanwhile, break some taco shells in half and top them with cheese. Melt the cheese in the oven.

 

Start building your wrap: Beef first on the tortilla, then the taco shell with the cheese.

Lettuce, tomato and bacon go on next! Then fold the tortilla around the sandwich so the ends meet in the center.

Brown the wraps in a hot pan with a little butter, seam-side down first to seal the seam.

Crunchy, bready, spicy, savory, and with a nice fresh boost from the lettuce and tomato. These are a perfect little twist on the fast-food fave, and you don't even need to sit in a drive-thru line!
