Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme Copycat

I've been trying to clean out my cabinets/pantry for a while now.    I pulled ground beef from the freezer yesterday, and when I checked to see if I had taco seasoning, I found an Old El Paso Hard and Soft Taco dinner kit that had been pushed to the back.    I remembered pinning something that used a hard and soft taco and went to find it.   As usual, I had to deal with my picky people. I am the only one that will eat sour cream, lettuce or tomato, so I set about making myself one of these copycats.

I broke open the kit and realized my mistake, taco shells and tostada shells are not the same  :)  No problem, I just broke the taco shell in half so it lay flat.    Then my second mistake- I'd forgotten the can of nacho cheese.     I hedged my bets and used shredded Mexican cheese blend.     I used a burrito size tortilla for the base, laid down a nice amount of cheese.   Topped it with the taco meat, then the broken shell.   Sour cream, lettuce, tomato.   I topped it with one of small soft tortillas from the dinner kit and folded it according to the directions.    To cook them, I used my Cuisinart Griddler (I know, I need a 12 step program).    I brushed the grates with some butter, threw it in and let it do its thing til it was crispy and golden.

Mine doesn't look like the pictures, but it was delicious.    Thank you so much to Holly at Life in the Lofthouse for sharing the recipe!

(As for the rest of the dinner kit?   I laid out the soft tortillas, added a good amount of shredded cheese and then microwaved them until it was melted.  I pressed it around a hard shell to make them double layered.  Everyone was happy! )

                  Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme (Copycat)


  1                 lb  ground beef
  1             packet  taco seasoning mix
1  generous cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
 burrito-size flour tortillas
Old El Paso Hard and Soft Taco dinner kit
  1                cup  sour cream
shredded lettuce
diced tomato
  1                cup  shredded Mexican cheese blend
                        Butter to coat the cooking surface (I used a Cuisinart Griddler)



Heat a skillet over medium high heat.   Break up and brown the ground beef until it's no longer pink, then drain.   Add the seasoning and water and cook according to the package instructions.

Place burrito size flour tortillas on a flat surface.  Sprinkle a layer of shredded Mexican cheese in the center.  Add taco meat, about 1/2 cup.    Break hard taco shell in half so it lays flat over the meat.    Top with a layer of sour cream, lettuce and tomato.   Sprinkle with cheese.   Place a soft taco from the kit on top of the cheese.

Fold the burrito sized tortilla up towards the center.   Continue all the way around, pressing lightly.     Preheat the griddle or press.   Brush the surface with butter.    Add wraps and cook until crispy and golden brown.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
