  • 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.
  • 4
    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.
  • 5
    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.
  • 6
    Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • If desired, add sour cream over the cheese-topped crunchy shell before wrapping in the soft tortilla, or serve sour cream on the side for dipping.

More About This Recipe

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